    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 ad 5 minutes=1440/5=288 ads per day
    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.

    12 * 24 / 10000 = 35 days
