How Many Minutes Are in a Week?

A week has 10,080 minutes. It is a time unit equal to seven days. A day consists of 24 hours, and an hour in turn consists of 60 minutes. Thus, to find the minutes in a week, multiply 60 by 24, and then multiply the result by 7.

What is considered to be the first day of the week varies all over the world. According to the international standard ISO 8601, the seven-day week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday. Most Latin-based languages derive the names of the seven days of the week from the anicent Romans, who related the days of the week to the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
