## Piece Rate Formula

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

PIR = PP / HW

- Where PIR is the Piece Rate ($/hr)
- PP is the total piece pay ($)
- HW is the total number of hours worked (hrs)

To calculate the piece rate, divide the total piece pay by the total number of hours worked.

## How to Calculate Piece Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Piece Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total piece pay ($).
- The total piece pay ($) is given as: 500.

- Next, determine the total number of hours worked (hrs).
- The total number of hours worked (hrs) is provided as: 10.

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

PIR = PP / HW

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

PIR = 500 / 10 = 50.00 ($/hr)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total piece pay ($) = 600

total number of hours worked (hrs) = 20

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

PIR = PP / HW** = ?**
