Mythical Man question:
If it takes one person 3 months to complete a task, why does it take 4 people 6 months to complete the same task?
They are writing biographies of each other using only one computer. It takes 1/2 a month to write one.
With 3 people, there are 6 to write (A writes B, B writes C, C writes A, and vice versa).
With 4 people, there are 12 to write.
