# Thread: Ageing in dog years. How to calculate that in days, hours, seconds?

1. ## Ageing in dog years. How to calculate that in days, hours, seconds?

If a dog ages 7 years for every 1 human year, how do I calculate how much the dog ages for every human day, hour, minute and second?

The 7:1 ratio is hypothetical, of course. But for this problem I'm just taking it as fact.

Thanks.

2. 1 year is 365.25 days.
1 day is 24 hours.
1 hour is 60 minutes.
1 minute is 60 seconds.

You can just use the fact that a ratio is conserved by multiplying or dividing, so 7 dog minutes are equivalent to one human minute, then just convert to the required unit by combining the values that I mentioned before.

Does it make sense ?

Well dogs and humans both live on planet earth, where the number of seconds, minutes, hours, days and years are the same for everyone. Ergo, if dogs age seven times faster then that ratio holds steady for any measurement of time.

Thanks for the answers. I thought it would be more complex than that.

Happy now. Going to take the dog for a walk.
