I supposed you just got Lucky with the answer...

You probably thought I was really asking <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">How many digits does Hans have?</span hide> and you got the correct answer <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

Ok, I'll byte - why 12?

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> 2nd of Jan, 2nd of Feb...........2nd of Dec</span hide>

Wouldn't <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">the 22nd</span hide> count as a "second"?

I am not the originator of the question, so I could not possible answer <img src=/S/angel.gif border=0 alt=angel width=15 height=21>

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> so I agree, using your logic it would be :

for each 12 (months) x 20 ( seconds) = 240

and

12 (months) x 1 (seconds) =12

So there are a total of 252 seconds in a leap year </span hide>

13. ## Re: Seconds in a Leap Year

Well, on my logic, I make it <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">24

12 x 2nd of each month +
12 x 22nd of each month</span hide>

A play on words sir

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> there are always 22nds in a month (say it out loud) therefore 20 x seconds in a month</span hide>
