    convert to hours

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    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.
