That's exactly what I put in as the answer :) I was hoping it would actually accept it like it does with that one "Kiu manĝas horloĝojn?" —> "La granda Mazi.". It didn't accept it though :(

1 tago · 24 horoj · 60 minutoj = 1440 minutoj

I already wish they teach me how to read mathematical operations in Esperanto. For some reason, though, I always tend to read numbers and operations in my mother language -even if they appear in an English text!

Not just you. There was some study that found people who learn a second language tend to still count in their native tongue.

Could one omit "da" or would that be grammatically incorrect?

Shouldn't it be: "How many minutes does a day have?" "... is one day" sounds wrong. I am not a native in English. Any opinions on that?

A day is 1440 minutes. The same way that one kilometer is one thousand meters.

You could say that (although it would be a less literal translation of the Esperanto here). ‘X is in Y’ and ‘Y has X’ are not that different.
