Per Tolkien on p. 11 of The Nature of Middle-earth, there are 31,556,926 seconds in a solar year and 35,831,808 minims.

The ratio of a minim to a solar second is therefore

31,556,926 / 35,831,808 =
0.880695888971050525834476451760402377686328303612254229

where the 243 underlined digits repeat infinitely.

The calculation was performed using WolframAlpha.
