A1. (a manager) = 14
A2. (everyone else) = 10

A0. (slavedriver) – 1 working day = 8 hrs… it is close to the release so I can get people to work overtime. 12 hours * 14 days = 168. 168/8 = 21.

There are 21 days in a 2 week iteration if I really need there to be.

I would be interested to know the context for the question. What was the reason it was ever asked ?

I didn’t ask the question. The manager mentioned something about “14 days,” to which I replied, “What’s that?” “An iteration,” he said.
