A)We know that there are 3,600 seconds in an hour and there are 24 hours in one day. We do not know how many seconds there are in one day. B) We need to know how many hours are in one day. There are 24 hours in one day. C) 86,400 sec/day D) Since you expect that there are more seconds in one day, this leads to the fact that there is in one hour, so 24 hours times the number of seconds per hour gives me the number of seconds per day as there are 24 hours in one day

Work Step by Step

C) 3,600 sec/hr x 24 hrs/day = 86,400 sec/day
