### How to Convert Annual Salary to Hourly Wage?

To calculate hourly wage using the annual salary, divide the salary amount by the number of hours worked per week. Then, divide the resultant value by the total number of weeks worked per year.

Hourly wage = Annual salary / Hours worked per week / Weeks per year

#### Example:

Suppose you earn \$40,000 per year and work 40 hours per week for 52 paid weeks per year. Then, your hourly wage would be:

Hourly wage = 40000 / 40 / 52 = \$19.23 per hour

### How to Convert Monthly Salary into Hourly Pay?

Firstly, multiply the monthly salary by 12. Then, divide the resultant value by the number of hours worked per week. Lastly, divide the result by the number of weeks worked per year. The final figure will be your hourly wage.

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

#### Example:

Let's say you earn \$2500 per month and work 40 hours each week for 50 paid weeks per year. Then, the calculation will be:

Hourly pay = ( 2500 × 12 / 40 ) / 50 = \$15 per hour
