# How many hours in a year?

This is a difficult question to answer as it depends on how many days you work and whether you take annual leave or not. The average number of working days in an average year is thirty-five days. If you work more hours than this, you are working for more than a year. In case you work fewer hours than this, you will work less than a year.

The number of days in a month is also important to know and this is called the average annual working time. The number of days in each year can be calculated by dividing the 365 days of a normal year by twelve and this gives us the average monthly working time for that month. To calculate how many hours are worked in a year, divide the total number of days by 365 and this gives us the hourly rate.

## How Many Hours Are in an Average Work Year?

If you want to know how many hours in a year are billable and how many are “free”, then you need to calculate the recovery hours. Take away the vacation you take and add the days you are billing to your normal working hours. Then multiply that by your hourly rate and you’ll get the billable hours. If there are no days off in your year and you work a normal 40-hour week, then you work as many hours in a year as your billable hours contribute to work-life balance.

### how many are the ‘free’ hours

To find out how many hours in a year are billable and how many are the ‘free’ hours, it is necessary to multiply the two figures together. Divide the total number of billable hours by how many free hours there are in the year and this gives you work-life balance. Also, Divide the total number by the hourly rate and this gives you the percentage of how many hours are spent in “free” time versus how many hours are spent in “paid” time. Divide the total number by the hourly rate by eight, because dividing by eight we get a percentage which is our ratio of free time.

### how many hours there are holidays

If you are asking how many hours in a year there are holidays, then you should multiply our answer by how many hours there are holidays by six to get our vacation report. Then, multiply that by how many days there are in a typical week in that year (for example, how many days in an 8-week working year there are Sundays). Once you have your vacation report, you can link it to the appropriate calculator to get the corresponding number, which tells you how many vacation days there are in that common year. (Be sure to check that the joint work year already includes holidays.)
