    Hello, phillyfan09!

    Hi, wanted to double check my answer. What is your answer?

    What date and time does the 1,000,000th second of the year occur?

    1,\!000,\!000\text{ seconds} \;=\;16,\!666\tfrac{2}{3}\text{ minutes} \;=\;277\tfrac{7}{9}\text{ hours}

    . . = \;11\text{ days, }13\tfrac{7}{9}\text{ hours} \;=\;11\text{ days, }13\text{ hours, }46\tfrac{2}{3}\text{ minutes}

    . . = \;11\text{ days, }13\text{ hours, }46\text{ minutes, }40\text{ seconds}


    \text{The }1,\!000,\!000^{th}\text{ second occurs on January 11, at } 1\!:\!46'40''\text{ p.m.}
