Dimensional Analysis

I wonder how many minutes I run a year? I run 60 minutes/day for 3 times a week. In order to find how many minutes I ran for a year, I would need to do a dimesional analysis equation with conversion factors that equal one year!

Here is the equation to figure it all out:

60 minutes        x          3 days          x          52 weeks    =   60 x 3 x 52=

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1 day                                 1 week                      1 year               1 year

I spend 9,360 minutes running at the gym! Wow, I accomplished a lot of running!
