Correct.

2000 mins is 33 hours 20 mins

2000 hours is 83 days 8 hours

2000 days is 5 years 74 days

2000 weeks is 38 years 24 weeks

+1

do these take leap years into account?

Edited by:"jonny619447" 4th Mar 2011By all means point her in the right direction but if she can't do it then whats the point in getting the answers on here from someone. She will never learn anything.

i've allowed for 1 but were there two?

Op probably wants to watch Emerdale, so instead of helping daughter, she has asked the question here and said "darling, just write down the answers them little mugs on HUKD work out for us, I will be back in 30 minutes" (_;)

its not technically my homework!

Well stop technically doing it then!

technically that would be an incorrect answer the question give you all the info and is particular with it so knowing your leap years is required!

Ask your Dad what time of what day of what year will it be: etc

I don't correct her homework it's up to the teacher to explain the answers.

I just thought they were an interesting set of questions.

he put leap years in..

oh great my 9 year old is in the top maths class for his year so this means i'll get homework like this soon?lol

i dont remember ever having homework like this when i was their age

She'll learn not to ask her family for help in the future.

BFN,

fp.

+2000secs = 1 Jan 2000 00:33:20

+2000mins = 2 Jan 2000 09:20:00

+2000hours = 24 Mar 2000 08:00:00

+2000days = 23 Jun 2005 00:00:00

+2000weeks = 1 May 2038 00:00:00

Its also not technically correct because 2000 days is not 5 years, 74 days!

I trust you took into account leap years?

My daughter's answers are the same as yours for the first 3 ( except she has missed changing 0.33 minute to 20 seconds.

But on the days question she has the 22nd June 2005 - I think this is because with the two leap years 2000 and 2004 she has put that it leaves you 173 days?

after1st Jan:31 takes you to 1st Feb, 28 more to 1st Mar, 31 more to 1st Apr, 30 more to 1st May, 31 more to 1st June, so 151 days to 1st June - takes you to 23rd June.

something to look forward to! lol
