Of course, this calculation ignores the fact that the 'year' is no texactly 365 days, and that Leap year corrections will not completely compensate. Over this amount of time, the exact number of seconds is probably irrelevant, and could just as accurately )and perhaps more so, as the answer indicates that there is some uncertainty in the calculation provided) as "around 31.5 billion". The numbers used are only accurate to three significant figures (in particular, the figure for days in a year), so any more precision at the end of the calculation is not really appropriate.
