 The First Place-Value Number System   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
arithmetic operations, the use of a number system whose base is wholly divisible by many numbers, especially the smaller values, conveys certain advantages.
And so we come to the Babylonians, who were famous for their astrological observations and calculations, and who used a sexagesimal (base-60) numbering system (see also The invention of the abacus).
This was an extremely important development, because prior to place-value systems people were obliged to use different symbols to represent different powers of a base, and having unique symbols for ten, one-hundred, one thousand, and so forth makes even rudimentary calculations very difficult to perform (see also The Ancient Egyptians).

You can find out the number of seconds in a year by multiplying the number of seconds in a minute (60) by the number of minutes in an hour (60).
Then multiply that by the number of hours in a day (24), and multiply that by the number of days in a year (approximately 365.25).
So we've got 60 x 60 = 3600 seconds in an hour 3600 x 24 = 86400 seconds in a day 86400 x 365.25 = 31,557,600 seconds in a year.
