# Time to form a complete graph from n vertices given that only k vertices can be used at a time [closed]

I know this problem is related to the greedy algorithm and max edges incomplete graph but can't come up with a solution.

Problem

You are given two numbers n and k:

n >= k

n is the total # of vertices

k is the maximum number of vertices that can form a complete graph per second

There are no edges initially

how many seconds does it take to form a complete graph of n vertices?

• We can't tell you how many seconds that will take, as that is dependent on the specific architecture and other factors that are not stated here. I don't know what "maximum number of vertices that can form a complete graph per second" means. – D.W. Jun 12 at 3:23
