Hi Diana;

24,739,200 [(1 hour)/(60 minutes)]=412,320

412,320 [(1 day)/(24 hours)]=17,180

17,180 [(1 year)/(365 days)]=47

**You are 47 years old.**

**You used minutes.**

So this takes some trial and error, unless you're very good about keeping track of how much and how often you're dividing the original number.

Here are the possibilities

365 days * 24 hours a day = 8760 hours in a year but 24,739,200/8760 = 2824.1095 years and that's too big to be the right answer

8760 hours * 60 minutes in an hour = 525, 600 minutes in a year, and 24,739,200/525,600 = 47.0685 years and that is quite possible

Therefore, the unit of time is minutes.
