If I make 40,000 dollars every 15 minutes then how long will it take me to make a million Let f be the number of fifteen minute blocks. We're given: 40000f = 1000000 To solve for f, we type this equation into our search engine and we get: f = 25 Total minutes = Fifteen minute blocks (f) * 15 minutes Total minutes = 25 * 15 Total minutes = 375 minutes or 6 hours and 15 minutes
