    A help desk with 8 employees takes up to 200 calls per hour. If every employee works 8 hours per day, how many phone calls can each person take in his or her work day

    8 employees can take 200 calls per hour, and every employee works 8 hours a day. We can divide 200/8 to find out how many calls 1 employee can make per hour: 200/8=2525 (calls 1 employee makes per hour)*8 (hours they work in a day)=200Seems odd at first glance, but that's the answer. We can also look at it from another method: 8 employees take 200 calls per hour. How many calls per day can 8 employees make? 200*8=1600. Now we would divide that by the number of employees 1600/8=200.
