Homework Help: Science

Posted by joey v on Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 11:11am.

Why is an extra day added to February every four years?

It is nice to have the calendar year the same as the Earth's orbit around the Sun. It takes 365 1/4 days to go around the sun...so, each four years, we add a day to correct the calendar.

Thanks Bob!
