Dave blinks his eyes about 3 times per minute when he's awake. He is awake for 14 hours per day. Does Dave blink his eyes more than 1000000 times in one year?

\(\text{assuming a 365 day year}\\ nblink=3\dfrac{blink}{min}\cdot 60\dfrac{min}{hr}\cdot 14\dfrac{hr}{day}\cdot 365 \dfrac{day}{yr} = \\ 3\cdot 60 \cdot 14 \cdot 365 =919800 \dfrac{blink}{yr} \\ \text{so no, not quite a million blinks per year}\)
