# Can you solve this math problem?

## A company has 4 employees that can perform a certain task. We know that one of the employees can do this task in 3 hours, another in 4 hours, a third in 5 hours, and finally the last one in 6 hours. Given that each employee must perform 2 jobs while working in a group of 2 people and that no group can be repeated, how should the company assign the groups so that it takes the shortest amount of time to complete all of the jobs. The longest?
