## Group work calculator

Group work calculator evaluates the average work of two different groups. It also tells how long these two groups can take to complete a task.

## What is Group Work?

Working together in a group is referred to as group work. The group could consist of several students, workers, employees, etc. Working in a group can increase the success percentage. You can definitely get the benefits of sharing ideas and insights during group work.

Working together is a way of achieving a required goal accurately and quickly as different persons think differently from others and share their thoughts with each other.

**Formula**

The formula to compute the time taken by two people to complete a task is:

`Group work = 1/(1/a + 1/b)`

where

**a**= time taken by person**1**in days or hours to complete a task**b**= time taken by person**2**in days or hours to complete a task

**Example**

Find the time taken by two persons to complete a project together if **person 1** takes **4 **days to complete a task and **person 2** takes **7 **days.

**Solution**

**Step 1: **Take the values

Person 1 takes = 4 days

Person 2 takes = 7 days

**Step 2:** Take the formula and place the values.

`Group work = 1/(1/a + 1/b)`

= 1/(1/4 + 1/7)

= 1/(0.25 + 0.14)

= 1/0.39

= 2.56

Hence `2 and a half days`

will be required to complete a project if both work together.
