Enter the total duration of topics, number of participants, and the pause time per participant into the calculator to determine the meeting time.

## Meeting Time Formula

MT = (TD ) + (PT * NP)

The following formula is used to calculate the meeting time. Variables:

- MT is the total meeting time (hours) TD is the total duration of topics to be discussed (hours) NP is the number of participants PT is the pause time per participant (hours)

## What is a Meeting Time?

A meeting time refers to the specific date and hour when a meeting is scheduled to take place. It is a predetermined period during which participants gather to discuss, negotiate, or make decisions on certain matters. The meeting time is usually agreed upon by all participants to ensure everyone’s availability and is often communicated through a meeting invitation or notice.

## How to Calculate Meeting Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Meeting Time using the given formula:

- First, determine the total duration of topics to be discussed (TD) in hours.
- Next, determine the number of participants (NP).
- Next, determine the pause time per participant (PT) in hours.
- Next, calculate the product of PT and NP.
- Finally, add the result from step 4 to TD and divide the sum by NP to calculate the total meeting time (MT).

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Total duration of topics to be discussed (TD) = 8 hours

Number of participants (NP) = 10

Pause time per participant (PT) = 0.5 hours
