Hello fellow programmers!

I was going to write a small program for calculating total pay for different periods of time depending on the amount of hours and the salary that the user enters. I managed to make a small bit of the program but when I try to run it and test it I get the following error:

```
Line 33: error: no match for 'operator*' in 'pay * hours_day'
```

I tried doing a google search on this problem but I am really confused on what causes it.

here is my full program code:

```
#include <iostream>
#include <random>
#include <time.h>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <string>
using namespace std;
/*
*Program Flowchart*
- Find out how much a worker gets paid per hour, and then find out how many hours they work
a day, and then multiply that to get the total pay in a week or a month or a year.
*/
// global variables
string pay;
float hours_day;
// function that takes the amount of money and calculates the total pay in a week
int total_pay_week() {
cout << "Type in your salary per hour." << endl;
cin >> pay;
cout << "Ok, how many days do you work per day?" << endl;
cin >> hours_day;
float total_day = pay * hours_day;
float total_week = total_day * 7;
cout << "Your total pay in a week is " << total_week << "if you worked " << hours_day << " per day. " << endl;
}
int main() {
total_pay_week();
}
```

This is a very early version of my program! I just wanted to know what causes this problem.
