MY DAUGTHER WILL BE 10 YEARS NEXT WEEK AND THE HOMEWORK SAID:
A NORMAL PERSON BLINKS ABOUT 25 TIMES PER MINUTE WHEN AWAKE. A) HOW OLD WILL YOU BE ON YOUR NEXT BIRTHDAY; B) TO THE NEAREST MILLION, HOW MANY TIMES WILL YOU HAVE BLINKED ON YOUR NEXT BIRTHDAY?. ASSUME YOU SLEEP 8 HOURS EACH DAY.
Please do not use all capitals when submitting questions. It is rude.
To get an answer (for your daughter), compute the number of minutes of sleep in ten years, and multiply that by 25 blinks per minute.
That will make 3652 days x 8 hours/day x 60 minutes/h x 25 blinks/min
Multiply it out.
