French Revolution and Decimal Measurement

For about 10 10 years after the French Revolution, the French government attempted to base the measurement of time on multiples of ten: One week consisted of 10 10 days, one day consisted of 10 10 hours, one hour consisted of 100 100 minutes, and one minute consisted of 100 100 seconds. What is the ratio of the duration of one French decimal second to the duration of one standard second?

Assume that one French day was equal to one standard day.
