That would be - 3.5% - almost zero custody. How that is figured is 6 hours per week times 100 then divide by 168 (total hours in a week).


7 (days in a week) x
24 (hours in a day) =
Total [2 items] 168 T (total hours in a week)

6 (his number of hours in a week) x
100 /
168 =
Total [3 items] 3.5714285714286 T


You have the child 96.5% and he 3.5%.
