Salaries are commonly expressed in terms of an amount per paycheck, per hour or even per year, but they are less frequently expressed in a certain amount per day. With a little simple math, figure out how much money you are making per day.

Look at your pay stub and find out how much money you made for that pay period and how many weeks were in the pay period.

Divide how much you made for the pay period by how many weeks were in the pay period. For example, if you made $652 in the pay period and there are two weeks in the pay period, you made $326 per week.

Divide the amount you made per week by the amount of days you work in a week. In this case, if you made $326 in a week and you worked five days that week, you made $65.20 a day.
