It was raining outside and making a rhythmic dripping sound that slightly amused Samatha. She counted 6 drips every 20 seconds. It is10:00pm at night. At this rate,how many drips will Samatha hear until midnight (counting the drips at 10:00pm and midnight)?

10-10:59 - 1 hour

11-11:59 - 1 hour

12 - 1 minute

2hrs 1 minute = 121 minutes

121 minutes*60 seconds per minute = 7260 seconds

7260 * (6/20) = 2178 drips
