Dimensional Analysis Example

Practicing Guitar 

If I practice guitar 6 days a week for 50 minutes, how many minutes do I play a year?

Well, in order to find out we must use a dimensional analysis equation.

50 minutes        x     6 days           x         52 weeks =   50 x 6 x 52 = 15600 minutes

   1 day                       1week                       1year                                                   1year

I practice guitar 15600 minutes per year.
