How do I find out a percentage of a number

You likely mean this to be the 'Average' number of employees per day rather than percentage. However you need to work out based on hr's per day that each employee can work. Lets assume though that they work full time, 8hrs per day. Then you would work out as follows:
3223.5 /8 /28 /306 = 0.047 employees per day

If they only work 1 hr per day it would be:
3223.5 /28 /306 = 0.376 employees per day

Each employee would need to work:
3223.5 /306 = 10.53hrs per month

How do I find out how often a sheep has lambs in each year?

Ask Fixya!

The rate of lambing under farm management varies a lot depending on the system used. The average best rate without intensive management is one lamb per year.

Claims have been made for a rate of 2/yr, but this system has not been proven commercially.

The 3/2 system produces 3 lambs in 2 yrs with careful management of mating and lambing times.

The STAR system produces 5 lambs in 3 years,and has been made to work with intensive management.

I have a Sunbeam EM6910. The machine wont power up at all. Is my circuit board likely to be fried? It is 6 years old and perhaps not worth fixing?.

could be any number of faults but at 6 years old it is not economical to fix. How much did you pay and how many coffees in that 6 years... And what else did you learn....

Do some research and get a new system.

I understand about going green but when a company can not supply how their product works is outrageous

As a repair person of over 30 years experience I agree with you.

Sets are not being made to either be repaired or service info available as only boards are sold---in some cases NO PARTS were ever available/sold.

Smart people who with service info etc could fix the unit are shut out--once the set is past the original warranty they are not interested in helping you or me.

Several companies recently produced a run of over 50 thousand identical sets---they made no additional parts, no service literature is available,---idea was quite simple---sell all except for a small percentage---any that fail in first year----just exchange--after that the poorly made sets can fail and unless someone had a extended warranty they are out of luck---PS: what happens here is the company "goes out of business" and is off the hook---only to appear again somewhere else under a new name.

Best defense is the Extended warranty---over 80 percent of the sets in our shop are under 3 years of age=====either do that or be prepared to buy a new set every three years=my personal experience is average life span on these sets is 3-5 years and dropping every day.

Sometimes if you buy cheap you get cheap.

One drip of water per second from a facet wastes about 0.25L per hour. how much water is wasted in a day? in a month? in a year?

About 6L in a day, about 180L in an average month and about 2,191.50L for most years (except leap years).

You multiply .25L x 24 for a day and that gives 6L, then 6 x 30 for average month = 180L and finally 6L x 365.25 = 2,191.50 in a year, as there are 365.25 days in most years.

Short answer would be "Too much water wasted -- fix the lerky faucet!" But what does this have to do with PC Desktops?
