If we want to find the years, the days being given, the latter must necessarily be civil days, i.e. the differ¬ ence between the lunar days and the ilnardtrct days. This difference [i.e. the civil days) stands in the same relation to their unctrdtrct as the difference between the universal lunar days and the universal ilnctrdtra days, viz. 1,577,916,450,000, to the universal iXnardtra days. The latter number (-i.e. 1,577,916,450,000) is represented by 3,506,481. If we multiply the given days by 55,739, and divide the product by 3,506,481, the quotient repre¬ sents the partial Unardtra days. Adding hereto the civil days, we get the number of lunar days, viz. the sum of the partial solar and the partial adhimdsa days. These lunar days stand in the same relation to the ctdhimdsa days which belong to them as the sum of the uni¬ versal solar and adhimdsa days, viz. 160,299,900,000, to the universal adhimdsa days, which number (t.e. 160,299,900,000) is represented by the number 178,111. If you, further, multiply the partial lunar days by 53II, and divide the product by 178,111, the quotient is the number of the partial adhimdsa days. Subtract¬ ing them from the lunar days, the remainder is the number of solar days. Thereupon you reduce the days to months by dividing them by 30, and the months to years by dividing them by 12. This is what we want to find. E.g. the partial civil days which have elapsed up to ``` Prev Page 43 Next
