3. I took this basic math challenge!

\$55,645 divided into 52 weeks per year = \$1,070.10

\$1070.10 divided into 40 hours per week = \$26.75 hourly pay rate

My math is operating under the assumption of a 40 hour work week, with no overtime or vacation.

depends on how many hours you work.

yearly salary divided by 52 weeks divided by hours per week.
5. Since many nurses work three 12-hour shifts weekly, I'll change up the assumptions to entail a 36 hour work week, which will raise the hourly rate.

\$55,645 divided into 52 weeks per year = \$1,070.10

\$1070.10 divided into 36 hours per week = \$29.73 hourly pay rate

7. based on a 40 hour week, you can figure each 50 cents an hour is equal to \$1,000.00 / year (based on 2080 hours worked / year).

so divide the salary by 1/2 and convert to dollars and cents, e.g., \$60,000.00 / year = \$30.00 an hour.

You might want to ask this particular facility's HR about the salary quote. At my place of employement, they take :

40hrs/week X 52 weeks/year=2,080

your salary / 2,080 = hourly rate

So, in your case it would be: \$55,645 /2,080 =\$26.75 hourly

Hope this helps.
