The average life span of a tortoise is 200 years. How many days is this?

##73000## without taking the 50 leap years into consideration.

##73 050##

The method and answer depend on the level of accuracy required.

We could just say that: 1 year has 365 days, therefore

in 200 years there are ##200 xx365 = 73,000## days,

However, this does not take into account that every 4th year is a leap year with 366 days.

So, over a period of 200 years there will be 50 leap years meaning there will be 50 days more.

However, this is an average, and 50 is a really small fraction of 73,000.
