Your best resource for these questions is the man page.

Do the command:

man useradd

And review the options.

I know the answer but this is the teach a man to fish thing, take a look over the man page and you should have your answer in a few seconds. If you have any other questions we will be happy to help

This should help:

add a new user to primary groups

Code:
useradd -g developers tony
Add a existing user to existing group

Code:
usermod -a -G ftp tony
add a new user to groups

Code:
useradd -G {group-name} username
Adding users to supplemental groups:

Code:
useradd -G admins,ftp,www,developers jerry
and etc.
