Step 4: Divide the hours you spent in each category by 168 (the total number of hours in a 7 day period).
Ex. Sleeping – 36 hrs. / 168 = 0.2142857
Move the decimal place two places to the right and drop the remaining numbers to determine the percentage.
Ex. 0.214 = 21%
Step 5: Create a pie chart or bar chart that represents the categories above and your values. Illustrate how much of your time was spent doing each activity.
Step 6: Based on your results from the pie chart, reflect on your time management. Write a paragraph (7 -10 sentences) addressing the following questions:
