### If you make 13 dollars a hour how much do you make a year?

First, you must calculate how many hours there are in a
year.
There are 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year. So, there
are 24*365 = 8760 hours.
Since you make $13/hour, multiply $13/hour with 8760 hours =
$113880
The above assumes you make money while you sleep; if you only
take into account working hours, you must calculate how many hours
you work per day (for example, 8), and how many work days there are
in a year (roughly 365 x 5 / 7 if you work from Monday to Friday,
minus some more days for vacations and legal holidays).

### How long is 3000 work hours equal in years?

The number of working hours, and working weeks in a year, can
vary from case to case. You can assume an average of about 8
working hours a day, 5 days a week, and perhaps 50 working weeks a
year - but it may be a bit less, depending on how many weeks of
vacation an employee has. Also, an employee will usually not work
40 hours every week on average; it will be a bit less due to sick
leave, vacations, etc. Anyway, you can make an estimate based on
these numbers - probably anywhere between 2000 working hours a
year, and perhaps 10-20% less than that.

### You make 25000 per year how much do you make per hour?

Working 40 hours a week at $25,000 a year would be roughly $12
an hour, before taxes.
If you need to figure a different amount of hours per week, take
your total - 25000, and divide it by how many weeks in a year - 52.
Then divide that number by how many hours you work per week. That
will give you the pay per hour.
