How Long Does It Take to Count to a Billion?

How long it takes to get to a billion depends on how quickly a person counts. If you counted one number every second, it would take about 31 years, 251 days, 7 hours, 46 minutes, and 40 seconds.

In the United States, a “billion” is written as the number 1 followed by 9 zeros, or 1,000,000,000. To figure out how long it would take to count from one to a billion without stopping, first divide a billion seconds by 60 to get the number of minutes. The number is then divided by 60 to find out how many hours there are, and then by 24 to find out how many days there are. To get the number of years, divide the result by 365.25 again, with the decimal part taking into account leap years.
