How are the weekly team hours calculated?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Adding and configuring teams

If I add multiple team members to a team the weekly hours do not increase e.g. 3 people working 40 hours a week in a team I would expect to see the overall team hours display 120 hours. If I have 3 people working 2 working 40 hours and 1 working 5 hours I would expect weekly hours to display 85 instead I get  85/3 which is 28.3 available team hours. Can you please explain how this works and how it affects the scheduling?

So I figured this out. The weekly hours for is not for the team as a whole but for each individual team member.  If  the estimate for a task is 80 hours and the team is comprised of two people, one who works 40 hours and the other that works 10 the weekly hours for the team will be 25 (50/2 team members).  Assuming the team works 8 hours per day, the project will take 8 days.
