In response to Michael Perelman's ope-l 4688:

Michael: "Suppose I time a heart surgeon. She works 3 hours. How much
labor does that represent?"

Three hours, if she works at normal intensity.

"I know that 3 hours of her abstract labor is
half of 6 hours. What else do I know from this exercize?"

Nothing, taken by itself.
