The amount of hours in a week differs depending on what you use for the basis of your calculation.

For the standard seven-day week, with 24 hours per day, there are 168 total hours in a week. This figure is calculated by simply multiplying 24 by 7 (24 x 7 = 168).

The calculation changes if you want to include another day of the week, such as a Sunday. In this case, there are 176 total hours in a week (24 x 8 = 176).

For those employed for a standard Monday through Friday workweek, there are 120 hours in a week (24 x 5 = 120).

Finally, for international business people and airline pilots who often have to travel through several time zones, there are sometimes 168.75 hours in a week. This figure is based on using 24.75 hours per day as the average day length over 7 days.

No matter which account you use, a week is always 7 days and there are 24 hours per day. Whether you use 168, 176, or 168.75 total hours in a week, most of us use the same amount of time in a week, just not always in the same way.
