How is the professional trader 390 per day average orders per calendar month calculated?

Does anyone have any experience on how this is actually calculated? I dug around the SEC website and all I got was "greater then 390 orders on average per calendar month". I'm setting up a program using robinhood API and I want to make sure I stay below this limit, but also don't miss out on opportunity. Does the calculation include weekends and off days? Or is that up to the broker to determine? Right now I am just using 20 trading days per month to be safe (7,800 orders max) but would be interested to know if I could increase that any.
