### Don't know much about math

Alright, i'm trying to do this game with some friends..
And it's a timed game.. heres an example..
Start time is at 1: 20 pm
multiple people, have x amount of boxes to do
theres different amounts for each person.. and everyone starts at the same time but ends at a different time when they are done.
Lets say 1st player has 87 boxes, and finishes at 1: 43pm
How would i find out the amount of boxes done in hours ?
Is there a solution/formula base for finding out?
Any thoughts at all would help!

1:43pm minus 1:20 pm equals 23 minutes

23 minutes = 23/60 hours

(87 boxes) / ((23/60)hours) = number of boxes per hour.
