Assuming we start on Nov 28th 2000, we have until Dec. 12, 2000 (Electoral College Meets) to count, OR 14 days. 

5393.6 days = round to 5394 days

How many men would it take to do the count in 14 days?
	It would take 1 man 5394 days, working 9 hour per day, to count all votes
	It would take _x_ men 14 days, working 9 hour per day, to count all votes

5825043 votes / 5394 days = 1079.9115 (round to 1080) votes counted per day.

5394 / 14 = 385.28571 (386 guys)

x counting 1080( 14 ) = 5825043
x counting 15120 = 5825043
x=5825043/15120=385.25416 (round to 386)

386 men * 1080 votes per day * 14days = 5836320

Then multiply by 3, reviewers for each ballot - democrat, republican and observer.
386 X 3 = 1158 (democrat, republican, observer)

1158 people counting for 9 hours a day for 14 days could count the entire state of florida.
