If you add resources, Project shortens the

Duration
Because the task’s duration is fixed, adding 
resources doesn’t affect the task’s duration, but 
Project reduces the allocation of each resource.
The task’s duration and all resource 
allocations remain the same when you add 
resources, but Project increases total work.
