----------------------------------------------------------------
6.71 days = 6 days + 0.71 days
0.71 days = 24 hr x 0.71 = 17.04 hrs
17.04 hrs = 17 hrs + 0.04 hrs.
0.04 hrs = 60 min x 0.04 hrs = 2.4 min
2.4 min = 2 min + 0.4 min
0.4 min = 60 sec x 0.4 = 24 sec.
Therefor, 6.71 days = 6 days 17 hrs 2 min 24 sec.
