Figure This!

The best place to find your pulse is on your wrist or neck. Count the number of beats in your pulse for 15 seconds and multiply by 4, or count the number of beats for 30 seconds and multiply by 2.

Once you know the number of times your heart beats in 1 minute, find the number of beats in 1 hour and then in 1 day.
