It's also printed on most people's paystubs... it tells them how many hours and what they are being paid for those hours

I found some pay rate calculators but they all require how much earned per hour.
Divide by 2000

How do you calculate earned per hour

I usually use 2000 hrs / yr (80 hrs vacations is a 'potential perk!)

Not pretty of you are paid salary,

Don't do it!

Very good if you are a successful real estate agent with a bunch of cash buyer clients who trade LOTS of property. ~$1000 - $6000 / hr

You owe it to yourself and people who rely on you to do your own research and to figure this out on your own. Additionally, you should strive to learn more math even if you have no intention of using it. It will only help you in life and will not amount to wasted time.

As a VERY general rule of thumb. I typically just double the hourly wage to get the annual rate in thousands. $10/hr = 20K a year. Again, this is just a very rough estimation. But it basically comes down to using 2000 hrs annually x the wage. On the flip side - given the salary, I just take 1/2 that and that's the hourly rate (removing the thousand). So $50K a year is ~$25/hr.

It's all too complicated. If you know your yearly, divide it by 2 and you have close enough your hourly. Or, your hourly times 2 gives you your yearly. Simple and really close to the exact number.

Well, there's some zeros in there but that's a good insight.

Salaried rate divided by contractual hours.
