Your calculation is open to critique in three different ways.
a) There is a massive flaw in the jump from your second line to your third line.
This is partly because you got confused between days and months.
If a biblical "day" is equal to a certain number of DAYS, then a biblical "hour" will be equal to a smaller number of DAYS, not MONTHS.
Also your division is inaccurate.
52 days divided by 24 comes to 2 days and 4 hours- not 1.7 of anything.
Did you use a calculator? That may be where you went wrong.
I did the calculation in my head- good old-fashioned mental arithmatic, you can't beat it.
b) One large school of thought will question the premise in your first line.
They will point out that the biblical "week" is based on the phrase in Daniel- "A week of years", and is tradionally understood as seven years,
not one.
c) I question the whole principle of calculation from a different angle.
We are told in Daniel that the final "king" rules for a "week".
We are told in Revelation ch17 that the Beast rules for "one hour".
This means that the "week" and the "hour" are exactly the same time period, and any attempt to calculate one as a proportion of the other is
completely blown out of the water.
