## How to calculate your hourly rate

**First, multiply the number of hours you work each week by the number of weeks you work each year (commonly 52 or 50). Then,divide your annual salary by this figure. E.g. If you earn a salary of $40,000 and work 40 hours per week for a full year, your hourly ratewould be $40,000/(40 × 52) = $19.23.**

**Hourly** = Salary per year / (Hours per week × Weeks per year)

### Hourly rate example calculation

Let's say that you earn $50,000 and you work a 40-hour week for 52 paid weeks per year. To work out your hourly rate, your calculation would be:

50000 / (40 × 52) = **$24.04 per hour**

Your hourly rate for your $50,000 annual salary works out at $24.04.

## How to convert a monthly salary to an hourly rate

**To calculate your hourly rate based upon your monthly salary, multiply your monthly figure by 12 and then divide it by the number of hours you work per weekand again by the number of paid weeks you work each year.**

**Hourly** = (Monthly salary × 12 / Hours per week) / Weeks per year

### Example calculation

**Example:** If you earn $3,000 per month and work a 40-hour week for 52 paid weeks per year, your calculation would be:

(3000 × 12 / 40) / 52 = **$17.31 per hour**

Your hourly rate for your $3,000 monthly paycheck works out at $17.31.
