Twenty-four hours in a day, 60 minutes in and hour and 60 seconds in a minute. 2.83 times 24 times 60 times 60 equals 244512 seconds.

60 times 10 = 60020% of 60 = 12So, 600 seconds + 12 Seconds...Which equals 612 Seconds; If I'm not mistaken.

60 seconds per minute, times 60 minutes per hour = 3600 seconds, times 24 hours per day = 86,400 seconds, times 365 days per year = 31,536,000 seconds, times ten years per decades = 315,360,000 seconds. Close to a third of a billion.

As there are 60 seconds in a minute, divide by 60. It goes in 5 times with a remainder of 30, so that is 5 minutes and 30 seconds.

12 Chimes.Assuming that a "chime" is the full sound range from start to finish, the clock will chime 10x in 8 seconds. It will chime 2.5x in 2 seconds, and assuming that a chime is the full sound length from start to finish, .5 chime does not equal 1 chime.Therefore 10+2=12 ChimesThe above answer is only right if we assume that at 0 seconds the clock chimes 0 times.If we instead assume a starting signal - meaning the clock chimes for the first time at 0 seconds - then it would be reasonable that each consecutive chime would happen one second later. Therefore after 10 seconds the clock would have chimed 11 times.One starting signal and 10 second chimes.

In basketball, the shot clock counts down the time a team has to take a shot (which must hit the rim in order to qualify) after taking possession of the ball before a violation is called. In the NCAA, the shot clock is set at 35 seconds, which is 11 seconds longer than that of the NBA.
