## One in a million

The prefix *micro* means one millionth. A century is 100 years. Quick now, about how long is a microcentury?

A) 59 seconds

B) 53 minutes

C) 47 hours

D) 41 days

B) 53 minutes

C) 47 hours

D) 41 days

Your answer — **A) 59 seconds** — was incorrect.

A 365-day year has 31,536,000 seconds, so a century has 100 times as many, plus another 2,073,600 for the 24 days added by leap years (some centuries get 25). Dividing the total by one million gives 3156 seconds, or 52.6 minutes.
