Enter the total time taken for the work into the Work Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Work Rate.

## Work Rate Formula

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

WR = 1 / T
• Where WR is the Work Rate (1/time)
• T is the total time taken for the work

To calculate a work rate, divide 1 by the total time of work.

## How to Calculate Work Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Work Rate.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total time taken for the work.
• The total time taken for the work is given as: 5 days.
2. Finally, calculate the Work Rate using the equation above:

WR = 1 / T

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

WR = 1 / 5 = .20 (1/time)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total time taken for the work = 7 days
