One more time. A day lasts for 23hrs 56min and 4 sec. 3 years 11 months and 30 days so there must be a leapyear during this time. one year is 365 days. 11 months and 30 days normally lasts for 364days. but one of the years is a leaptyear so we add one extra day. So we have 1460 days.
'real day' 24 *3600 = 86400 23hrs = 3600 * 23 = 82800 sec 56min= 60 * 56 = 3360 sec so a day lasts 86164 seconds. 86164 * 1460 = 125799440 seconds per 4 years 125799440 / 86400 = 1456, 012037037 days 0, 012037037..... * 24 = 0,28( 8 ) hours ~ 17 minutes Dude, I feel so stupid now  it's just the simplest maths could ever be. 1456 days and 17 minutes is quite impossible  leapyear is suposed to even the real day and the actual.

Ok I have no idea whats the clue so here comes the only solid answer I came to.

And if our final count is a 30days month 1461days. If the final month is nonleap February its 1643 days. If it's leapyear February it's 1462days I might have confused the exact counts, but did you mean sth. like this? E: continued. If our 3years 11 months and 30 days contain a year that is divisible by 100 and not by 400 we should subtract from previous results one day.

but from which year / month do we start counting from ? Because out of those 3 years, 1 could be a leap.
So, I was right. I demand a star Last edited by typedef on 21 Dec 2011, 22:32; edited 1 time in total

Because aforementioned question allows thousands of interpretations due to its uncertain formulation. We don't know what kind of "year" we should consider here. What kind of calendar is given: Julian, Gregorian, ancient Egyptian [360 days, 12 months each 30 days long] or maybe other. Another thing  most of the people reading this question will assume that we ask about continuous time interval. I don't see such an assumption in the question, so I can pick arbitrarily 3 leap Gregorian years, 11 leap Februaries (11*29 days) or 11 Decembers (11*31 days) and add 30 days to get the correct answer.

If it's leapyear February it's 1462days Wink My intention was to show that time spans using the most commonly used calendar can be very ambiguous. It was only meant to be for fun so I hope no one was suffering stressful sleepless night wondering which of the gajillion possibilities I was asking for. And indeed I had even more examples of time spans than the 14601463 as shown by malpolud. Did you know about the 1582 missing days? And other countries had their own schedule for switching that create even more possibilities for alternative time span values.
