On my science worksheet... it says "Venus: Rotation (days) 243R" What does the "R" stand for?

It says the same thing on Uranus and Pluto. Please help!!! :)

I think that it means rotation. It could possibly have something to do with the fact that Venus rotates not only slower than other planets but rotates backwards from the other planets.

I dont know what the R stands for but it means that it takes 243 earth days for Venus to rotate once around its axis. So maybe R stands for Earth days or Earth rotations
