How long would it take to count to 1 million if it takes an average of 1 second to say each number?
At one number per second — with no breaks, at all, for any reason — it would take 11 days, 13 hours, 46 minutes, and 40 seconds to count from one to 1,000,000.
What is the record for the highest number counted?

How long does it take to count to a million?
If you could count one number a second and you counted for a full day i.e 24 hours with no break to eat or sleep, you should be able to count up to 86,400. At this rate and under these conditions it will take about 11 and a half days to get up to a million.
How long does it take to get to a billion dollars?
To get to a billion using the same technique and assuming one number a second it will take around 31 to 32 years. The most reliable method would be to have a computer with a voice unit to recite the numbers.
How long would it take to live on Earth (and why)?
After adding in the other eight hours of the day, this comes out to 89,000 days or roughly 244 years. (And if you’re curious about the whole “no need to do anything else but count” scenario, that would be roughly 59,333 days or about 163 years.)
What is the highest amount ever raised by a human?
Along with raising about $12,000 for the charity directly (and getting them a lot of free publicity), Harper’s achievement was recognised by no less of an authority than the Guinness Book of Records for being the highest number ever counted to by a human.
