How does it take to make this call?

(available locally).

How long would be the telephone number if we took 10 minuts to dial it?

  • I tried that data was as realistic as possible. The movie E.T. is set in North California. I searched the prefix of Yreka, a town in North California which has a forest zone. The landing scenes from the movie are in a forest zone. The E.T. phone number is based on the first digits of number \(e\).
  • A possible generalizatin would be using old phones (with rotary dial), in which we spend more time dialing 9 than dialing 1.
