## anonymous one year ago 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! :)

HI!!

2. misty1212

as a decimal $$\frac{1}{6}+1.6666...$$ so maybe they really mean one sixth of a year, or two months
