**Answer:**

This n means 69.66 quartes. A year has 4 quarters Hence

=> 69.66/4 = 17.415 years

A year has 365 days

0.415 years meaning => 0.415*365 = 151.47 days

Hence a total of 17 + 151.47 = **17 years 151
days**

Note: This is a simple calculation. Doing it in excel requires complex VBA stuff which is not advisable
