When the time given does not consist of whole years, then reduce the odd time into Decimal parts of a year. And unless such parts of a year chance to be 1-10 of a year, the best way will be to reduce the odd times into days, and then work with the Decimal parts of a year, that are equivalent to those days. 10 300 70 .75 A Table for the ready finding the Decimal Parts of a year equal to any Number of Days, or Quarters of a Year.
