a coding supervisor must determine the number of fulltime equivalents (FTEs) needed to code 500 discharges per week. If it takes an average of 20 minutes to code each record and each coder works 7.5 productive hours per day, how many FTEs will the coding supervisor need?

math 
Steve,
7.5 hours/day * 3 records/hr * 5 days/week = 112.5 records/week per FTE
So, divide that into 500 to see how many FTEs are needed.
