The earth completes 1 rotation on its own axis approximately every 24hrs The earth completes 1 rotation around the sun approximately every 365 days So the number of rotations on it's own axis after completing 1 rotation around the sun is: 24 rotations per day x 365 days = 8,760 rotations.
one time more than the number of days in a year

365. Second response is funny: - The earth completes 1 rotation on its own axis approximately every 24hrs; + I add that one day as 24hrs; - 24 rotations per day.... Well I didn't know we had a 576hrs days :)
While it makes 365 complete rotations around the sun, to answer the question being asked, the answer would have to be that the earth is constantly rotating around its own axis.
