I need the formula for the following: I have 39 technicians working 8 hours a day. The technicians should be loaded with 4.5 jobs per day, but are currently loaded with 2.4 jobs per day. What is the formula to find available hours?

I'm assuming the 4.5 and 2.4 jobs/day refers to all 39 technicians.

Total work hours: 39*8=312 hours/day

Should be doing 4.5 jobs/day, so they need 312/4.5 = 69.3 hours/job

They are doing 2.4 jobs/day, so they work 69.3*2.4 = 166 hours/day

Available hours: 312-166=146 hours (3.7 hours per technician)
