Enter the amount of PTO days accrued and the amount of days worked into the Accrual Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Accrual Rate.

## Accrual Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Accrual Rate.

**ACR = DA / DW**

- Where ACR is the Accrual Rate (accrued days per work day)
- DA is the amount of PTO days accrued
- DW is the amount of days worked

## How to Calculate Accrual Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Accrual Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the amount of PTO days accrued.
- The amount of PTO days accrued is given as: 10.

- Next, determine the amount of days worked.
- The amount of days worked is provided as: 150.

- Finally, calculate the Accrual Rate using the equation above:

ACR = DA / DW

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

ACR = 10 / 150 = .066 (accrued days per work day)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

amount of PTO days accrued = 60

amount of days worked = 600

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

ACR = DA / DW** = ?**
