## How to Convert Seconds to Days

*Example: How many days are equivalent to 37.87 seconds?*

As;

1 seconds = 1.1574E-5 days

37.87 seconds = Y days

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 37.87 times 1.1574E-5 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 37.87 * 1.1574E-5 / 1 = 0.00043830738 days

Answer is: 0.00043830738 days are equivalent to 37.87 seconds.
