What is the difference between the number of hours an employee would prefer to spend on him- or herself and the actual amount of time the employee spends on him- or herself? (a)

To determine

To calculate: The actual number of hours per week that employees spend on their jobs and careers when the two circle graph show how surveyed employees actually spend their time and how they would prefer to spend their time. Assume that employees have 112 hours a week that are not spent sleeping. Round answers to the nearest tenth of an hour. (Source: Wall Street Journal Supplement from Families and Work Institute)

Explanation

Given Information:

Two circle graph shows how surveyed employees actually spend their time and how they would prefer spend their time. Assume that employees have 112 hours a week that are not spent sleeping.

Formula used:

Proportion used for percent:

percent100=amountbase

Calculation:

Base is 112 , percent for job and percent is 37% ,

The actual number of hours per week that employees spend on their j

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The number of hours that employees would prefer to spend on their jobs or careers when the two circle graph show how surveyed employees actually spend their time and how they would prefer to spend their time. Assume that employees have 112 hours a week that are not spent sleeping. Round answers to the nearest tenth of an hour. (Source: Wall Street Journal Supplement from Families and Work Institute)

(c)

To determine

To calculate: The difference between the number of hours an employee would prefer to spend on him or herself and the actual of the time the employee spends on him or herself when the two circle graph show how surveyed employees actually spend their time and how they would prefer to spend their time. Assume that employees have 112 hours a week that are not spent sleeping. Round answers to the nearest tenth of an hour. (Source: Wall Street Journal Supplement from Families and Work Institute)
