So, does anybody else think that 24x7x365=7 years?

what about the leap year?

Yeah, it’s rounded off. There is no easy way to conveniently write that :)

6.995352403 years

By Gregorian calendar (365.2425 days = 1 year)

geek thread detected :D

rounded down to 7 years then … cause people keep writing 24x7x365 as in “open all year around” … I guess it’s more like “open all 7 years around” :)

aha…. wondered where the question came from….

Hehe, “This company will function nearly 7 years” would sound more depressing :)

it means support works too much. Toooooo much.

I think, my friend, that simply means “we are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year!”.

….. for 7 years ;)

or 6.9953……..

How do you even get 7 years from that expression?

You don’t…… See comment above ;)

24 hours is a day. Multiplied by 365 -- that’s a year (almost). Then you multiply by 7 and you’re done. :-)

Of course, you are right. I should probably work less.

No, he isn’t. 365*7 is seven years, without considering leap years. 24 is just an unneded number. But if you keep it in the expression it would result in 168 years.

24 informs you that you are talking about a day (in hours) so it’s needed, without it you are making a presumption of days -- if you take hours instead and leave out the (unneeded) 24 the result would be 106.4583 days…..

you can not just multiply amount(7) to days(365) and to hours(24) and get amount of years as result. The result would be amount of hours in 7 years (approx), but not 7 years.

You can not just multiply amount(7) to days(365) and get amount of years as result. The result would be amount of days in 7 years (approx), but not 7 years.

… 365 x 7 = 2555 not 7

Yes, you are right.

I did the same mistake I was trying to explain :)

LOL… but formally you are right it IS 7 years!
