How many years, months, and days, from October 25th, 1845, to August 18th, 1850 ? REM.-In this question, instead of using the eighth and tenth months, some authors prefer calling them 7 months and 9 months ; but if there is an inaccuracy in the months, there is also in the years; hence if we read the above thus: The one thousand eight hundred and fiftieth year, the 8th month and 18th day, there is no inaccuracy. In computations of time we always take 30 days as a month. 26. The difference in time of two places is 2 hr. 2 min. and 2 sec.; what is the difference in longitude? Ans.
