    The path that takes you the longest time to complete the work is the critical path.

    They placed the duration under the circle that made me missed it too. 5+8+1 =14 the longest path

    Hey! This threw me off when I was studying as well, but after some research with a friend we figured out the confusion. These are actually two different charts. One is a PERT chart and the other is a Critical Path Method (CPM) chart. I'm including a link that gives a great explanation of when you'd use one vs the other.

    In summary though, they both appear very similar. This article explains it well.
