How Many Minutes Are there in a year?

As we are aware of  an astronomical year is, on average, 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds. Translating this into minutes, we find that there are 525948.75 minutes/year

How many days are there in one hundred years?

The first attempt at answering this question is with an equation-  $$100\times 365$$ which equals 36,500 days.  With this formula, 100 years are not accurately counted because it does not take leap years into consideration. So when February 29th is set as a leap year, the next day after which the date stays the same would only be February 28th. Thus, 36,500 days do not truly represent 100 years.
