151200 minutes.

Explanation:

From the question given above, the following data were obtained:

Time (in week) = 15 weeks

Time (in min) =?

Next, we shall convert 15 weeks to days. This can be obtained as follow:

1 week = 7 days

Therefore,

15 weeks = 15 weeks × 7 days / 1 week

15 weeks = 105 days

Next, we shall convert 105 days to hours. This can be obtained as follow:

1 day = 24 h

Therefore,

105 days = 105 days × 24 h / 1 day

105 days = 2520 h

Finally, we shall convert 2520 h to mins. This can be obtained as follow:

1 h = 60 mins

Therefore,

2520 h = 2520 h × 60 mins / 1 h

2520 h = 151200 mins

Thus, 15 weeks is equivalent to 151200 minutes.
