So a day is 18 days longer than a year.

Does this have to do with e.g. Mercury, which rotates once as it orbits the Sun?

1 Venus day = 243 Earth days
so 18 Venus days = 18 * 243 Earth days > 1 Earth year = 365 Earth days.. is it this?

may also work for 1 Venus Year (225 Earth days)..
or this?

***Spoiler***

Close Enough, or you may have said this, I'm not sure.

A Venus day (or time it takes for it to make one revolution on its axis) is 243 Earth days (24 hours)A Venus year (time it takes to orbit around Sun once)is 225 Earth days. So a day is 18 days longer than a year. 243-225=18.

I figured this would be short, because there aren't really that many other things it could be.
