how do i figure out this problem. the average human blink their eyes 6,205,000 times each tear. if a person is awake for 16 hours a day, how many times will she blink a day? a hour, a minute?

• math -

times per day = 6205000/365
= 17,000 times per day
divide by 16 waking hours per day
17,000/16
=1062.5 times per hour
divide by 60 to get per minute

17000 times a day, 1062.5 times an hour, 17.7 times a minute
