Scientists have calculated that the Moon's revolution around Earth is increasing by about .015 s per century. At this rate, how long would it take the length of a month to increase by one full day?

• math -

Well, you want it to increase 24 hrs, or converting that to seconds..

time= 24hrs*60min/hr*60sec/min

number of centuries= timeabove/.015
