# Months to weeks and weeks to months

Quite often you will have a monthly figure, when you want a weekly one, or a weekly one when you want a monthly one.

# Monthly to weekly

Multiply the monthly figure by 12. This gives you the yearly figure. Then divide by 52.

# Weekly to monthly

Multiply the weekly figure by 52. This gives you the yearly figure. Then divide by 12.

# Warning

This is a straight mathematical exercise. It assumes that the figure you have is representative. If it is not, your result will be misleading. Say for example, that you use a week where the claimant was paid an unusually large or small amount, your monthly figure will be correspondingly large or small.
