Problem 34

calendar $\mathrm{A}$ day - the time Earth takes to rotate from one noon to the next- is a basic measure of time. A solar year is about 365.2422 days. We try to keep our calendar in step with the solar year.
a. If every calendar year has 365 days, by how many days would the calendar year and the solar year differ after 100 years?
b. If every fourth year has an extra "leap" day added, by how many days would the two systems differ after 100 years?
c. If every hundred years the "leap" day is omitted, by how many days would the two systems differ after 100 years?
d. Critical Thinking Why is it important for the difference between the calendar year and the solar year to be zero?
