This tool helps you estimate the total cost and duration of your kursus based on your input criteria.

## How to Use the Kursus Estimator

To use this calculator, please fill in the following fields:

- Number of Students: Enter the total number of students enrolled in the course.
- Course Length: Enter the total duration of the course in weeks.
- Hours per Week: Enter the number of hours each student will spend on the course every week.
- Rate per Hour: Enter the hourly rate in USD for each student.

Once you have entered all the required information, click the “Calculate” button to determine the total estimated cost for the course.

## How the Calculation Works

The total cost is calculated by multiplying the number of students by the course length in weeks, then multiplying the result by the number of hours per week each student will spend on the course, and finally, multiplying that result by the hourly rate in USD.

Formula: `Total Cost = num_students * course_length * hours_per_week * rate_per_hour`

## Limitations

This calculator assumes that all students are charged the same rate per hour and that the courses have a consistent number of hours per week. If there are variations, please adjust the input values accordingly to estimate the cost accurately.
