Let me have another go. Let's assume there are:

'd' days in a year,

'h' hours in a day,

'm' minutes in an hour and

's' seconds in a minute.

Out of those only 'd' is a number dictated by the globe earth, it's the number of days it takes the planet to orbit its star. And let's pretend it's a whole number.

h, m and s are all arbitrary.

You can divide a day how you like

You can divide an hour how you like

You can divide a minute how you like.

We as humans have agreed on 24, 60 and 60 but we could have equally chosen other numbers and it would make no difference.

Hours in a year = d x h

Minutes in a year = d x h x m

Seconds in a year = d x h x m x s

It's not particularly useful to know the number of seconds in a year but it does at least mean something.

And you can divide that by d, h, m or s and get a whole number, because it is the product of the 4 numbers.

Divide by s and you get back to minutes in a year.

But if you divide by h, what do you get? It would be an integer but is it a meaningful one?

I'm not sure it would be, it doesn't represent anything. It would be a 24th of a year, in seconds.

I guess it's the number of seconds between, say, midnight and 1am each day in a year.

So what? It doesn't mean anything.

The point is there is a hierarchy in time, year, day, hour, minute, second.

You can't just arbitrarily divide one of these by another and expect to get a result which means anything.
