Default MS Project 2013 Resource Allocation Problem

I have attached some pics to help illustrate what I am trying to do. I have a task that is fixed work with 3 resources and 20 hours assigned to it. 2 of the resources work 8 hrs per day and one or the resources works 4 hours per day. MS project seems to want to divide the hours so that it creates the longest duration. What it does is to schedule the 2 resources that work 8 hrs per day with 6.25 hours and schedules the resource that works 4 hours per day for 7.5 hours. This extends the duration an extra day since the 4 hour resource has to work 2 days to work 7.5 hours. Instead of splitting the hours evenly across the resources is there a way to tell MS Project to divide the hours in a way that creates the shortest duration? In this case that would be the 2 resources with 8 hours per day working full days and the 4 hour per day resource working 1 full day.
