    [Solved] Helping a confused part timer

    I'm trying to work out how many holidays I'm entitled to at work but because I work part time it's on a pro rate basis. I'm hoping that one of you kind mathematicians will please help me.

    If I worked full time at 35 hours per week (1820 hours per year) I would receive 126 hours holiday.

    I currently work 28 hours per week and I have now idea how many hours holiday I should receive!!

    Please help!

    Thank you x

    28/35 = 4/5 = 0.8 ... you are working 80% of your normal 35 hrs

    80% of 126 is 100.8 hrs
