The incorrect number of minutes in a year, made famous by the musical Rent. The logic to this phrase is done with the equasion: 60 (minutes) X 24 (hours) = 1440 (hours in a day). 1440 (hours in a day) X 365 (days in a year) = 525,600 (minutes in a year) HOWEVER, this is using the incorrect idea that there are exactly 365 days in a year. The actual number of days in a year is 365.2422, or about 364 and a fourth days. SO, if we redo the equasion, we come out with
1440 X 365.2422 = 525948.768. Therefore, the actual number of minutes in a year is 525948.768
525,600 minutes-how do you measure, measure a year? Not like that Rent, not like that.
