Quick question involving months/years/days.
Okay, so, Some of you may or may not know of the webcomic 'Homestuck'. (
http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6)
Its a webcomic, pretty good one if i may so, but thats not the point.
Instead of years, they use a thing called 'Sweeps' Which 1 sweep = 2.16 years.
I started thinking about it, and i was wondering exactly how long is 2.16 years?
I know the 2 = 2 years, but how much is the .16? i know it cant be 16 months because 12 months is a year, and its really starting to confuse me.
Can anyone help? Thank you! :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as a decimal \(\frac{1}{6}+1.6666...\) so maybe they really mean one sixth of a year, or two months
