 # Freelancer Rates Learning Exercise

## Instructions

In this exercise you'll be writing code to help a freelancer communicate with a project manager by providing a few utilities to quickly calculate daily and monthly rates, optionally with a given discount.

We first establish a few rules between the freelancer and the project manager:

• The daily rate is 8 times the hourly rate.
• A month has 22 billable days.

The freelancer is offering to apply a discount if the project manager chooses to let the freelancer bill per month, which can come in handy if there is a certain budget the project manager has to work with.

Discounts are modeled as fractional numbers representing percentage, for example `25.0` (25%).

### 1. Calculate the daily rate given an hourly rate

Implement a function to calculate the daily rate given an hourly rate:

``````FreelancerRates.daily_rate(60)
# => 480.0
``````

The returned daily rate should be a float.

### 2. Calculate a discounted price

Implement a function to calculate the price after a discount.

``````FreelancerRates.apply_discount(150, 10)
# => 135.0
``````

The returned value should always be a float, not rounded in any way.

### 3. Calculate the monthly rate, given an hourly rate and a discount

Implement a function to calculate the monthly rate, and apply a discount:

``````FreelancerRates.monthly_rate(77, 10.5)
# => 12130
``````

The returned monthly rate should be rounded up (take the ceiling) to the nearest integer.

### 4. Calculate the number of workdays given a budget, hourly rate and discount

Implement a function that takes a budget, an hourly rate, and a discount, and calculates how many days of work that covers.

``````FreelancerRates.days_in_budget(20000, 80, 11.0)
# => 35.1
``````

The returned number of days should be rounded down (take the floor) to one decimal place.
