There are 525,600 minutes in a year (365 days)
How do we know that?
Lets begin from what we know towards what we want to know.
We know a normal calendar year has 365 days. We know there 24 hours in day. We also know there are 60 minutes in a day.
1 hour = 60 minutes
24 hours = = 1440 minutes
365 days x 24 hours = = 525,600 minutes
If it we are looking at a leap year, we simply replace 365 days with 366 days in which case we get
366 days x 24 hours = = 527,040 minutes
