Enter the number of story points and the conversion factor into the calculator to determine the total hours required to complete the task or project. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Story Points To Hours Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the hours required to complete a task or project based on story points.

H = SP * C

Variables:

- H is the total hours required to complete the task or project
- SP is the number of story points assigned to the task or project
- C is the conversion factor that represents the average number of hours required to complete one story point

To calculate the total hours required to complete a task or project, multiply the number of story points assigned to the task or project by the conversion factor. The conversion factor represents the average number of hours required to complete one story point, which is determined based on past experience and team capacity.

## What is a Story Points To Hours?

Story Points to Hours is a method used in project management, particularly in Agile and Scrum methodologies, to estimate the amount of work required to complete a task or project. Story points are a unit of measure for expressing an estimate of the overall effort that will be required to fully implement a product backlog item or any other piece of work. When we compare story points to hours, we try to map the complexity of the task (represented by story points) into the actual time it would take to complete it (hours). This helps in planning and scheduling the project more effectively.

## How to Calculate Story Points To Hours?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Story Points To Hours.

- First, determine the number of story points assigned to the task or project (SP).
- Next, determine the conversion factor representing the average number of hours required to complete one story point (C).
- Next, gather the formula from above = H = SP * C.
- Finally, calculate the total hours required to complete the task or project (H).
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

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

number of story points assigned to the task or project (SP) = 5

conversion factor representing the average number of hours required to complete one story point (C) = 2
