    unit conversion help / time/ milliseconds

    There must be thousands of milliseconds in a week, how many are there?

    I have been trying to do this, but don't get the right answer, I know 1 millisecond = 0.001 seconds.


    how do I work out how many milliseconds there are in a day?


    Thank you.

    There are 1000 milliseconds in 1 second, so calculate how many seconds there are in a day and multiply by 1000
