Ever wondered how long it would take to count to one million? or one billion, or even one trillion? In this article we do the math to show you how long it would take to count to a trillion or is it even possible?
One of the big questions that often asked is how long would it take a human being to count to a trillion? Lets start of by doing the math from how quickly someone can count to 100.
How Long Does It Take to Count To 100?
For the average human being it takes 25 seconds to count from 1 to 100.
How Long Does It Take to Count To 100,000?
On the basis that the average human being can count from 1-100 in 25 seconds, at the same rate it would take a human 28 hours to count from 1-100,000. At this rate the person would need to count continuously without eating or taking a rest.
In reality it will likely take 40 hours to reach 1-100,000 by counting. This was done by YouTuber Mrbeast.
How long did it take Mrbeast to count to 100000?
YouTuber MrBeast counted from 1-100,000 on camera which took him a little over 40 hours to complete.
How Long Does It Take to Count To A Million?
A million is 10 times more than one hundred thousand. If we said that counting from 1 to 100000 takes 28 hours, then counting to a million will take a human being 280 hours or 11.6 days to complete.
Based on real life data however, taking the time it took Mrbeast to complete 1-100,000 = 40 hours, it is likely that counting from 1 to 1,000,000 will take 400 hours or 16.6 days.
How Long Does It Take to Count To A Billion?
A billion is a thousand million. Taking the data we have above, it will take a human being 280,000 hours or 11667 days to count from 1 – 1 billion.
That amount of time would require nearly 32 years for someone to count from 1 to 1 billion. Would you spend 32 years of your life counting from 1 to a billion? I think not!
It is therefore possible for a human being to count from 1-1,000,000,000 in their lifetime, but not possible in a practical sense as it would require 32 years of work without taking a break.
How Long Does It Take to Count To Trillion?
A trillion is a thousand times more than a billion. Based on out calculated data above, it would take someone 280,000,000 hours / 11666666 days to count from 1 to a trillion.
In years this would take 31,963 years of continuous counting for an ordinary human being to successfully count from 1 to a trillion. It is therefore impossible for a human being to count from 1 to a trillion.
