    Question What's the Value of (Time) Here?

    This should be simple, but I'm not able to understand how they arrived at this answer. What I'm trying to figure out is, what is he actual value of 't' in this equation supposed to be?

    The time is given in days, but the formula calls for years. They have converted 310 days into 310/365 years.

    Good idea to start this type by calculating 1 day:
    x = 6300 * .08/365

    Then apply that to the number of actual days:
    310x
