# How many years are in 1 billion seconds?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking how many years are equivalent to one billion seconds. To solve this, we will need to convert seconds into minutes, then minutes into hours, hours into days, and finally days into years.

31.69 years

The final answer is approximately 31.69 years

#### Steps to Solve

1. Convert seconds to minutes

There are 60 seconds in a minute. So, we divide 1 billion seconds by 60 to get the number of minutes.

$$\text{Minutes} = \frac{1,000,000,000 \text{ seconds}}{60} = 16,666,666.67 \text{ minutes}$$

1. Convert minutes to hours

There are 60 minutes in an hour. So, we divide the number of minutes by 60 to get the number of hours.

$$\text{Hours} = \frac{16,666,666.67 \text{ minutes}}{60} = 277,777.78 \text{ hours}$$

1. Convert hours to days

There are 24 hours in a day. So, we divide the number of hours by 24 to get the number of days.

$$\text{Days} = \frac{277,777.78 \text{ hours}}{24} = 11,574.07 \text{ days}$$

1. Convert days to years

There are approximately 365.25 days in a year, accounting for leap years. So, we divide the number of days by 365.25 to get the number of years.

$$\text{Years} = \frac{11,574.07 \text{ days}}{365.25} = 31.69 \text{ years}$$

The final answer is approximately 31.69 years
