4.6 Write a program to prompt the user for hours and rate per hour using input to compute gross pay. Award time-and-a-half for the hourly rate for all hours worked above 40 hours. Put the logic to do the computation of time-and-a-half in a function called computepay() and use the function to do the computation. The function should return a value. Use 45 hours and a rate of 10.50 per hour to test the program (the pay should be 498.75). You should use input to read a string and float() to convert the string to a number. Do not worry about error checking the user input unless you want to – you can assume the user types numbers properly. Do not name your variable sum or use the sum() function.

``````def computepay(h,r):
if h < 0 or r < 0:
return None
elif h > 40:
return (40*r+(h-40)*1.5*r)
else:
return (h*r)

try:
hrs = input("Enter Hours:")
hour = float(hrs)
