# Random Fact: How Long Would it Take to Count to 1 Million

quote:

Naturally, that depends on how fast you can count.

But if you can count from 1 to 100 in one minute, and you keep counting every minute, without stopping, for eight hours every day (taking time off to eat, sleep, and go to school), you would reach 1,000,000 in 20 days, 6 hours, and 40 minutes, or almost 3 weeks.

If, however, you give up eating, sleeping, and school, and just count every minute of every hour of every day, you would reach 1,000,000 in 6 days, 22 hours, and 40 minutes, almost 1 week.

I can count way more than 100 in a minute.

I used to think about how long it would take me to count to different large numbers when I was in elementary school. I'd usually cheat and just say I could count one number a second to make it easier

just to extrapolate this fact out.

It would take 19 years, 9 days, 10 hours, 40 minutes, and 21 seconds to count to 1 billion at 100 numbers minute

At one number a second, it would take you 31 years, 251 days, 7 hours, 46 minutes, and 39 seconds to count to 1 billion.

That is without taking time to sleep, eat, drink.
