Ditto, a non-wiki friend, and myself spent two hours doing math today.

TICKS

1 tick = 1.399 (1.4) seconds

Source: Let's Voltron

1 second = 0.71428571428 ticks

60 seconds (minute) = 42.8571428568 ticks

3600 seconds (hour) = 2571.428571408 ticks

86400 seconds (day) = 61714.285713792 ticks

DOBOSH ("MINUTE")

1 second (0.71428571428 ticks) x 60 = 1 minute (42.8571428568 ticks)

+

0.2857142857 ("ticks" lost when standardizing to 1 second) x 60 

= 59.9 (60) ticks = 1 dobosh

"If 1 tick = 1.4 seconds, then 60 ticks = X seconds"

"X seconds = Y minutes"

1 tick x 60 = 1.4 x 60

84 seconds = 1.4 minutes

1 dobosh (60 ticks) = 1.4 minutes (84 seconds)

VARGA ("HOUR")

1 second (0.71428571428 ticks) x 3600 = 1 hour (2571.428571408 ticks)

+

0.2857142857 ("ticks" lost when standardizing to 1 second) x 3600

= 3,599.999999928 (3600) ticks = 1 varga

3,600 ticks / 60 ticks (1 dobosh) = 60

"60 times 1 dobosh (60 ticks) = 1 varga (3600 ticks)"

60 doboshes = Y minutes = Z hours

"If 1 dobosh = 1.4 minutes, then 60 doboshes = Y minutes?"

1 dobosh x 60 = 1.4 minutes x 60

60 doboshes = 84 minutes

1 varga (60 doboshes) = 1.4 hours (84 minutes)

QUINTANT ("DAY")

"Space math for Quintants: Keith and Shiro are with the Blades of Marmora, and the path is closed for 2 quintants. Later, Lance and Coran calculate 10 vargas have passed. 30 are left. Therefore, the path is closed for 40 vargas, or 2 quintants.

40 vargas = 2 quintants | 20 vargas = 1 quintant

Space math."

Source.

20 vargas = 1 quintant

1 varga x 20 = 1.4 hours x 20

28 hours = 1 quintant

1 quintant (28 hours) = X days

1 day = 24 hours

28/24 = 1.16667

1 quintant = 1.167 days

CONSISTENCY CHECK

84 minutes x 20 = 1,680 minutes = 1.167 days

Space math.
