To determine

The number of breaths taken by a human being during an average lifetime.

Explanation

Given Info: The typical life span of a human being is 70years. The rate of respiration is about 10breaths/minute.

From unit transformation,

1min=60s

Calculating the number of breaths that an average human being would take in a lifetime,

n=(10breaths/min)(1min60s)(70yr)(3
