April has 30 days with 24 hours in each day and 60 minutes in each hour. Use this to get the total minutes.

The interval is doubling, so it very quickly gets into large numbers

1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16384, ecteras.

Count one hiccup for each doubling until you get to the total minutes.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
