At the bottom you will find a problem for you tonight. Discuss this with your parents. The answer will be in tomorrows blog post.

Hi Andy,
I think the answer is 20 times because I timed myself to see how much I blink in a minute and I blinked 10 times but adults blink more then children and thats how I got my answer.

I would say 20 times a minute because generally adults blink about once every 3 seconds. So I divided 60 by 3 and got 20

Dear Andy
My estimate is 15,000 because I know that a adult blinks many times a day. I need to know how many times an average adult blinks. To get there. I had to think and give an estimate.
