36,000.00 a year -How much is that per hour if you work 40 hours a week?


Answer:    40 * 48 (4 weeks annual leave) =1920 hours worked
36000/1920 = 18.75 per hour

If you work the full 52 weeks:
40*52 = 2080
36000/2080 = 17.30 per hour
Just over $17 per hour....
Here is the math...
Most jobs say that a standard work year is 2080 hours.
Divide 36,000 by 2080 and you get about $17.30.
The easy rule of thumb for problems of this sort is to assume 2,000 working hours a year. That makes the math totally trivial -- in this case, $18 an hour. Not exact, but close enough.
36,ooo/52 weeks a year/40 hours a week=17.30769 hr
about $10-13 (maybe a few dollars more)
36,000 / 52 weeks / 40 hours = 17.30

that's about it.
50 weeks times 40 hours = 2000 hours. $36,000 divided by 2000 hours = $18.00 even an hour. not too shaby
$1.70
