Dviding 142/9.5 we have that there are about 14.9 "blocks" of 9.5 days in 142 days.Now, assuming that the day of rest always occurs at the end of the 9.5 day period, then he rested about 14 days. Notice that 14 * 9.5 = 133 days. And 8.5 more days = 141.5 days......so, to be technically correct, he still has 1/2 of day of rest at the end. So he actually rests 14.5 days !!!!
