I'm not the best at math so I appreciate the help.

I'm going to use pay per view for an example....

Lets say you made \$0.001 for every view you saw. You can only view (ads) every 5 minutes. You need to watch 10,000 ads to make \$10. How many days would it take to reach this amount?

am I right in using 5 x 10,000? then converting the 50,000 to days?

In 24hrs= 24x60 minutes=1440
Per day earning = 288x0.001=0.288\$/day
10 \$ in 10/0.288 days=34.7222 days

1 day has 24 hours -> 24*60 minutes. If you split that in 5 min intervals it 's 24*60/5 "5 minute intervals in a day".

To view 10.000 ads you need 10.000 such intervals. So, if X is the number of days you have:

24*60/5 * X = 10.000 -> X = 10.000*5/24/60 -> X = 34.72

Here is how to think about it:

How many 5 minutes are there in a day? 24 hours x 60 mins / 5 = 288 periods

How much can you make a day if you watched 24 hours a day 288 x 0.001 = \$0.288 or almost 29 cents.

Now how many days (\$0.288) are in \$10 10/ 0.288 = 34.72 or almost 35 days.
