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? 

Hi, 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. Penny
