**How long is a million seconds?**That's 1,000,000 seconds.

**What about a billion?**1,000,000,000 seconds.

Predict what you think the numbers will be.

Will you measure it in minutes, hours, days, or years?

Then work it out!

**How close were your predictions?**

i think it will take 3 days and 2 hours and 26 minutes

ReplyDeleteIs that a guess Shaznay? Do you have any idea how we could work out for certain?

DeleteI think one million seconds is 10000.02 minutes

ReplyDeleteI think it's 12 39/54 days

ReplyDeleteThis is very close! How did you work it out?

DeleteI think is 2 years

ReplyDeleteGood guess Deborah! Do you know how you can work it out? It might be a bit hard though, this is Year 6 work!

ReplyDeleteI ink it will be 3 days 2 hours and 35 minutes

ReplyDelete1 week 4 days 13 hours 46 minutes 40 seconds

ReplyDelete1 000 000 seconds are not as long as you may think, but then time is relative to what you are doing or what is being done to you.

First you change seconds to minutes:

1 000 000 divided by 60 = 1 6666 min. 40 sec.

Now change minutes to hours:

1 6666 divided by 60 = 277 hrs. 46 min.

Then change hours to days:

277 divided by 24 = 11 days. 13 hrs.

Lastly change days to weeks:

11 divided by 7 = 1 wk. 4 days.

Therefore 1000 000 seconds will be the same as:

1 week 4 days 13 hours 46 minutes 40 seconds

1 week 4 days 13 hours 46 minutes 40 seconds

I think it would be 9 days, 10 hours, 54 minutes and 37 seconds.

ReplyDelete1m divided by 60 equals 16666 min.40sec.

ReplyDelete16666 divided by 60 equals 277 hrs.46mins

277 divided be 24 equals 11 days.13 hrs.

11 divided by 7 is 1 week.4days

1m seconds is the same as 1 week 4 days 13 hrs 46 minutes 40seconds

1 week 4 days 13 hours 46 minutes 40 seconds

I think it could be 1 week 5 days 15 hours 48 minutes 41 seconds

ReplyDeletei think it would be 1/30 of a year so roughly about 12 days.

ReplyDelete1 week 2 days

I think 1,000,000 seconds will be about 1 week, 16 hours , 47 minutes and 27 seconds .Because one million seconds is not as long as you think

ReplyDeletei think you have to times 1,000,000 by 60 because 1 hour is 60 minutes .
