Yes - now think about it for a minute.


Need a clue ? What is an average ? How about number of <somethings> 
divided by time. So, all you have to do is multiply by time and 
you've got your number !

So, if you have the average over a 30 minute period, simply multiply 
that by 1800 (ie 30 mins times 60 seconds/min) and you got the total.
