# Salary Calculator

The *Salary Calculator* is a simple helper to give you the
breakdown of your salary from an hourly rate to its equivalent in daily,
weekly, bi-weekly, monthly and yearly amount. This tool could help you
specially if you are accepting new job offers and you need a quick
judgement to get a bigger picture of your salary.

## How to Use the Salary Calculator

When we accept now job offers, the first thing we tend to evaluate is how much money could we get paid based on the hourly rate and the working time limit. This is a very valid case when you are an online freelancer. The most common rate for a web developer is around 25 dollars per hour working on 40 hours a week.

Based on those given factors, you might want to figure out how much are you going to make in a month or in a year. This calculator will break it down for you.

Another useful case is when you are currently employed and working at a fix salary rate on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. Say for example you are getting paid 5,000 USD per month working 8 hours every day on weekdays. You can use this calculator by entering these values on the corresponding input fields and you'll get your salary breakdown on hourly, daily and yearly basis.

Check out this step by step guide on how to use the salary calculator:
