I remembered the solution to this one from Inspire... This took me 3:04, but would have been MUCH longer if I hadn't remembered the key (and rarely used by me) tool!

Wow,

 

I would have been out of the competition on this one.

-I tried the Make Groups Tool, but then scrapped it and went with the Summarize Tool.

-Great Discussion that you all are having here:

-The instructions said to make groups and not necessarily use the Make Groups Tool, as my experience with it has been that when you don't have the confidence in a tool, it is best to not use it and especially when you are on the clock you just want a working solution. Later, you can always go back and "Clean up," as I have seen this in my role where I had a working workflow early on that was a bit "dirty/sloppy," but worked and was criticized, only to later go back and "clean it up,". 

-The "dirty" workflow got us the information we needed for a time limited project...

Nonetheless, a win is a win, so any way that you can reach the finish line is legal in my book.

Also: CEIL...I struggled with this for a bit, as I couldn't quite figure out how to get the numbers to round up,as I had to google this function.

-Cheers!

It was a nice use of the Group Tool2019-07-25 10_17_12-Alteryx Designer x64 - Weekly_Challenge_172_Solution_Verakso.yxmd_.png

 It took me some time to figure out how to do the correct rounding of the result, but  a quick search in the search bar
