A reasonable estimate for the number of days you would spend counting is $12$.
If you counted $60$ numbers per minute, and you counted until you reach $1,000,000$, you would count for: $1,000,000\div60 \approx 16,666$ minutes In hours, this is equal to: $16,666\div60\approx277$ hours This is equal to: $277\div24\approx12$ days A reasonable estimate for the number of days you would spend counting is $12$.
