How Long It Will Take To Reach 1,000,000

Recommended Posts

I was recently replying to the forum "Count to 1.000.000 and back" when I saw a comment that looked like this:



341 think we will ever reach 1,000,000? If we do who will be number 1,000,000?

So I got curious and I decided to pull out my calculator and answer the question:



How long will it take to get 1 million at the current rate of posting?


Well, the forum was created on July 28, 2014, 182 days from today, January 25, 2015.
We are at the number 344.

344 posts / 182 days = ~1.89 posts/day.
We post ~1.89 numbers a day. Using this rate to calculate how long it would take to get to 1,000,000-

1,000,000 / 1.89 posts/day = 529,100.529 days
529,100 days / 365 days (1 year) = 1,449.589 years (not counting leap years)


Expect to finish on Friday, March 13, 3463. (Friday the 13th :o)


How long will it take to reach 1,000,000 in one year?


60 seconds * 60 minutes = 3,600 seconds (1 hour)

3,600 seconds (1 hour) * 24 hours = 86,400 seconds (1 day)

86,400 seconds (1 day) * 365 days = 31,536,000 seconds (1 year)
31,536,000 seconds (1 year) / 1,000,000 (the number we need to get to) = 31.536 seconds

So, it'll take a message posted every 31 and a half seconds to reach one million in one year.



UPDATE [1/26/15]!
So, today, a lot of numbers then the current rate were posted on the forum. I think I need to give updated info.

The forum was created on July 28, 2014, and today is January 26, 2015, which is 183* days.
We are at number 370.


370 posts / 183 days = ~2.02 posts/day

1,000,000 posts / 2.02 post/day = 495,049.504 days
Now, we need to subtract the days we have already used (which I didn't do last time)

495,049 days - 183 days = 494,866 days
494,866 days / 365 days (1 year) = 1355.797 years (not counting leap years)
So one variable can throw off an entire calculation!

Expect to finish around

OMG pokeball! You are awesome with your math.

If calculators were considered math, I'd be the happiest person alive. It'd probably take me about 30 mins. to do the whole thing in my mind (if I had paper to write on aswell)
