a. We’ll create a text file, enter the data and name it "data.txt".

We’ll try to open the file at the beginning of the program and check if it has opened successfully.
If it has, we’ll declare variables for first name, surname, social security number, hourly rate and hours worked.
Using the while loop, we’ll read line by line and store values in variables, respectively. After reading the data, we’ll calculate the gross_pay and display all the data using the cout.
