First, we must see how long it will take to count all one billion dollars. If each dollar is a second, then it will take 1,000,000,000 seconds.

After doing this, we must find out how many minutes by dividing by 60.

1000000000/60=16666666.67

Once we know how many minutes it will take, we find the hours by dividing by 60 again.

16666666.67/60=277777.78

Assuming we can only count for eight hours a day, we can find out how many days it will take to finish counting by dividing the number of hours by 8.

277777.78/8=34722.22

You will finish counting on day 34,723, counting for 13 minutes and 20 seconds on the last day.

1 billion seconds 16666666.67 minutes 277777.7778 hours 11574.07407 days

Assuming it takes about 1 second to count each dollar, it would take one billion seconds, or about 31 years and 8 months.

34.72 days

At 60 seconds to the minute and 60 minutes to the hour, that's 28,800 seconds in 8 hours. Going at that rate, it would take 34,722.2 days, or just over 95 years to count it all.

Naturally that depends on how fast you count. If you count one dollar bill every second, then it would take you 5,000 seconds, which is 1 hour 23 minutes 20seconds.
