Any idea of how much a trillion is? To put in perspective 1 million seconds is about 6 days, 1 billion seconds about 36 yrs. One trillion seconds is about 36,000 years. I cannot get my head around a trillion.
You've got some math errors there. One billion is one million multiplied by one thousand. Six times a thousand is 6,000. Divide 6000 days by 365 and it is 16.4 years, give or take.
But your six days for a million seconds is also not right. The correct number is 11.57 days.
Getting from a trillion from a billion is easy, one trillion is one thousand billions. Running the numbers, I come up with one trillions seconds is 31,709.79 years, give or take.
