I need to figure the equation based on 360 days per year.

no need to worry about leap years

1 day = 24 hours

(1000 years)/(one 24 hour day) = 360 days (?) = 1 hour

Thank you for the help.

I am using the Hebrew Year which is in essence 360 days.

As for the math:

1 day = 1000 years

1 day = 24 hours

1 hour = 1000/24=?

Since the solar year is 365 days long but a moon year (Hebrew calendar is based on the lunar) is only 354 days (29.5x12), an extra month is added to the Hebrew calendar every two or three years.

So how long is 42 months based on 1000 years = 1 day

You are dwelling too much on whether a year is 360 versus 365 days (or 365.25 days). Before moving on to the 42 month question, do you have an answer for the original question? Post #4 has a very good hint.

What is your motivation for asking what My intentions are anyway?

There is no motivation behind this line of questions except , I CAN'T Seem to wrap my mind around this problem.

41.66?

An answer or assistance and I will gladly end my post.

I AM well out of school at 41 and my even older dad asked me this question.

Even with the numbers in front of me, I have no idea if its 41.66 years,days or whatever.

This is a biblical question and I didn't want to bring that into the question for fear the question would be left alone.

Here is how the question was posed to me by my dad:

IF 1 day equals 1000 years, how long is an hour. Thinking I might could figure that out, he then added the kicker of how long is 42 months.

SOrry, I just truly don't know the answer..

I am only guessing the 41.66 is correct based on dividing 1000 by 24 hours in a day from post #4.

I can't wrap my mind around this one.

This is just a matter of ratios, very much like the scaling used to generate maps. Think of a map of your town, where one inch on the map might represent one mile. In this case, the ratio is 1 day : 1000 years, so 1 hour, which is 1/24 of a day, represents 1000/24 years -- or 41.67 years.

Epiphany!!! THe map is a big help. THanks to all for the info.

LEt me dig further; if I use the map scenario, will I take 1000 and divide by the number of minutes in a day to get the months?

24 hours is 1440 minutes

1000 / 1440 =.694 would that be the months?

Ok everybody here is the low down

If a day equals 1000 years, How much time is 1 hour

1000/24h = 41.66666666666666667

1 hour = 41.66 years

41.66 years = 41 years 7 months 28 days 1 hour 26min 24 seconds

That means if you where able to warp travel to another planet in the cosmos with a

barrel of freshly smashed grapes, leave the grapes behind and warp back to earth.

If 1 day on earth equaled 1000yrs on the planet you left the grapes on, you could watch your favorite TV show, warp back and you would have some old 40 plus year old wine!!

that would be a nice little trick!!!

Just make sure if you take your little brother you don't leave him behind!! Even for a second!! lol... you could get home take a leak in the bathroom, plop your butt down on the couch and go... " uhh where's Bobby?"

Immediately warp back for him and find.... he's now your older bother... and he'll prob kick your *** too... just say'n.

lets see....

1 second = 0.01157 years OR 4 days 5 hours 25 mins 26 seconds

1 minute = .694 years OR 8 months 9 days 20 hours 9 mins

2 minutes = 1.388 years OR 1 year 4 months 19 days 16 hours 18 mins

3 minutes = 2.0826 years OR 2 years 29 days 12 hours 28 mins 48 seconds

hope this helps

Such that:

[tex]1hour \frac{1day}{24hr} \frac{1000yr_{n}}{1day} = X years_{n}[/tex]

Where sub-n is the new scale

You could then just convert whatever the problem gives into a base that agrees with the unit factor and compute.

Just to bring in some new doubts.

If 1 day equals 1000 years - how long is 42 months ?

Does the 42 months take the place of the day or the 1000 years ???

ie Are we asking

If 1 day = 1000 years then 42 months = ....... years

OR

If 1 day = 1000 years then ..... (days) = 42 months
