Quandaries and Queries


My son is asking this question. He is in the second grade. I just want to make sure I have the right answer of 277.76 hours.

Q: If you can write a number each second for one million seconds, how many hours would it take?



There are 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour so in 1,000,000 seconds there are 1,000,000/6060 = 277.76 hours in one million seconds.
