Language/Type: PHP parameters formatting

Write a function named print_pay that computes and prints the amount of money an employee should earn. Your function accepts two parameters: $salary of type Float for the employee's hourly salary, and $hours of type Integer for the number of hours the employee worked. Every hour over 8 is paid at 1.5x the normal salary.

For example, the call of print_pay(10.00, 11) should print the following output:

Hours worked: 11
Pay earned: $125.00

You may assume that the value passed for the salary and hours are non-negative. Use the number_format($num, $precision) function to format a $num with $precision decimal places of precision.

Function: Write a PHP function as described, not a complete program.
