# How does Portfolio know which resource on a team to assign to a story in a fixed velocity sprint?

Say you have a team that can accomplish 10 points per sprint and there are 3 people on the team?  Does it do a split that each team member can do 3.33 points?  Or what is the logic on this?

Hi David,

That's correct, provided the people all have the same amount of working hours

Let me know if you have any questions about that.

Shannon

@Shannon S - Thanks, Lets say resource A is at 30 hours and Resource B is at 15 hours, how will it change the amount?  Will it reduce the velocity half for that resource in total?

Think of it this way.

Say the team has a velocity of 10 story points. You have two team members, and they work 15 hours and 30 hours, respectively, so a total of 45 hours for the team.

We need to work 10 story points in 45 hours, so they will be divided accordingly.

Thus, a 30 hour work week would do 6.66 story points, and 15 would be 3.33.

Essentially, if team member A works twice as more hours then B, then A will do twice as more story points as B.

Hope that's clear! Do let me know if you have any questions.

Shannon
