First you have to find out the micro task and it's completion time.

Suppose, If you have 100 task. Every task needs to complete 4 hour. So 100 tasks need 100*4=400 hour.
Now 400/8 = 50 days. Here 8 is working hour in a day.
So if you use 1 developer it needs 50 days/2 month. Think if you pay him $400, so it's actual development cost is $400*2=$800,
Now add your profit with this.
