Do these sentences mean the same thing?

A. The employees worked ten hours a day in the week preceding the event.

B. The employees worked ten hours a day the week preceding the event.

Thanks!

    They mean the same, but both are awkward. It would sound better to say:

    "The employees worked ten hours a day during the week preceding the event."

    OR

    "During the week preceding the event, the employees worked ten hours a day."

    Yes. The first is the more complete version and if in dount would be the one to use, but the construction that omits 'in' is quite usual.
