### What day is it after 72 hours from Saturday 10 pm?

Tuesday (at 10 pm too).

The reason is that 72 hours is exactly three days, which is the time difference between Tuesday and Saturday, both at 10 pm.

### Every 6 hours is how many times a day?

Every 6 hours equates to four times a day. The reason is that a day has 24 hours, and 24 divided by 6 equals 4.

When the doctor prescribes a medication every 6 hours, it typically means you should also take it four times a day, even if you have an 8-hour sleep period that exceeds the 6-hour interval for medication doses.

### How to convert hours to 8-hour work days?

Divide the number of hours by eight.

For example, to convert 112 hours to 8-hour work days:

112/8 = 14

Therefore, for 8-hour work days, 112 hours are 14 days.
