So, whenever I figure math out, I'm freaking amazed with myself. Today, I did a dance, and squealed because I did this without the use of excel, or a calculater. Ahem.
Employee A wants to take vacation time today. Supervisor has to maintain a spreadsheet of everyones vacation usage. Said spreadsheet is tracked in days. Such as "1" being an 8 hour shift. Employee A wants to take two hours of vacation time. What is the fraction of a day that should be entered into the spreadsheet?
Holey fuck it's math!
So I told Employee A I didn't know how to enter it, but I would figure it out. I said this out loud while using my fingers.....
- 1 day is 8 hours
- 2 hours goes into 8 hours 4 times (I came to this conclusion by eliminating fingers two at a time while holding up 8 fingers)
- (Holding up 4 fingers) omg, 2 hours is 1/4th of a full day 2, 4, 6, 8
- omg, 4 quarters in a dollar, so 1/4 of a day is a quarter, so thats .25
Great scott I've figured it out! You are taking .25 of a vacation day! *Angels sing*
I told you I'm freaking brilliant!
