There are 365 days in a year, or as I hope you all know, 366 this year.
Jill sleeps 8 hours a day and spends 7 waking hours a day at home. These amount to 229 days of the year, leaving 137 days. It takes Jill 1 hour and 40 minutes to travel to and from work (20 days), and her coffee and lunch breaks occupy 2 hours of the day (31 days). This leaves 86 days.
Jill works five and a half days a week, so subtracting the 52 Sundays and 52 half-Saturdays (26 days) leaves 8 days. But Jill’s company is closed for the 8 public holidays of the year. Therefore Jill is left with no time to work!
