Mostly through observation of wise men. They realised that the sun repeated its course every 360 days (later refined as 365.25 days, of course) or so, and that gave us years... a cycle of the moon gave us months, and a period of light and darkness gave us days. Only the week was defined by man and by man alone - when God created the world, it was done in six stages (described in the Bible as 'days') and 'on the seventh day, God rested'. From that, men would take a day of rest every seventh day ( and those of a faithful disposition would 'keep it holy').

81 weeks (567 days) is about 18.6 months. A month is not a fixed number of days, but the average is 30.4 days. 567 days = 1.55 Julian years x 12 = 18.6 months

It is about 2 years, 5 months and 2 weeks or 2.45 years.

24 months, 104 weeks, or 730 days

....52 weeks in a year, so 325 weeks divided by 52 = 6.25 years..... that would be 6 years and three months (¼ of a year), so it would be either 6 years and 93 days (3 31-day months) OR it would be 6 years and 92 days (2 31-day months + 1 30-day month) OR 6 years and 91 days (1 31-day month and 2 30-day months) OR 6 years and 90 days (3 30-day months).....get the idea? Or for that matter, it might be as little as 6 years and 88 days, if you use February..

Since there are 12 months in a year, 9 months = 0.75 years (9/12) Therefore you have a total of 2.75 years Since there are 365 days in a year there are 1104 days in 2 years and 9 months (of course this depends on which 9 months you include)

One month is almost exactly four and a third weeks. Therefore 12 weeks is equal to two and three quarter months.

30 months is 2.5 years. Each year is 52 weeks + 1 or 2 days (depending on leap years). So 2.5 years = 130 weeks plus 3 days (approx)
