## Working together/ group work:

Groups are created to gain a number of benefits like **collaborative learning**, **peer interaction**, etc. One of the benefits that is counted on the most is time-saving.

When people work in pairs or groups, the tasks are distributed and so is the time required to complete these tasks.

The time required to achieve a goal depends on the individual strengths and skills of each member.

Some people need more time to complete the assigned work than the rest. Hence, it varies from **group to group**. Usually, people who need more time are assigned easier tasks.

## Working together formula:

There is a formula used to find this time for a pair of two people.

**= 1/[(1 / A) + (1 / b)]**

Where **A **is the time required by the first person and **B **is the required by the second person.

**Example:**

Mister John can input the details of **100 **clients in the company’s data in **3 **hours while Mister Brekker can input the same amount of data in **2 **hours.

Divide the work between them and find the total time both will take to complete this task.

**Solution:**

**Step 1:** Write the given data.

`Mister John requires time = 3 hours `

`Mister Brekker requires time = 2 hours `

**Step 2:** Use the formula.

`= 1/[(1 / A) + (1 / b)]`

= 1/[(1 / 3) + (1 / 2)]

= 1/(^{5}/_{6})

= 6/5**= 1.2 hours**

**Step 3:** Convert the decimal place in minutes.

= 1 + 0.2 hours

= 1 hour + (0.2 x 60) minutes **= 1 hour + 12 minutes**
