    How would you calculate breaths per minute if you knew how many breaths were taken in 20 seconds? Times by 3?

    That wouldn't be how it works. Firstly, you'd have to calculate how much you breathed for a minute, then repeat the experiment at least 3 times for it to be reliable. Enjoy!

    Ah! In that case I think you would. I think I was explaining the experiment for breathing. But in this case, I think so. To my extent anyways.
