Assuming evey year is 365 days, and that you were counting one dollar each second,how long would it take to count 3.803 trillion dollars? Write your answers as years+days,rounded to the nearest day

  • College Math 111 -

    365 days * 86400 sec/day = 31,536,000 = 3.1536 * 10^7

    3.803 * 10^12 / 3.1536 * 10^7 = 1.2059233891 * 10^5, or about 120,592.33891 years

    or, 120,592 years 124 days

    reasonable, since a billion seconds is about 30 years.
