Rotten-

If employee works 40 hours a week you take 40 hours X 52 weeks = 2080 hours in a year.

If employee's annual salary is 40,000 you than divide 40,000 by 2080 to come up with the hourly wage of 19.23.

Formula:

Hours per week multiplied by 52 = annual hours
Annual salary divided by annual hours = hourly wage
