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

    17,000/16
    =1062.5 times per hour
    divide by 60 to get per minute
