CentOS 7.0 - man page for sleep (centos section 1)

SLEEP(1)				  User Commands 				 SLEEP(1)

NAME
       sleep - delay for a specified amount of time

SYNOPSIS
       sleep NUMBER[SUFFIX]...
       sleep OPTION

DESCRIPTION
       Pause  for  NUMBER seconds.  SUFFIX may be 's' for seconds (the default), 'm' for minutes,
       'h' for hours or 'd' for days.  Unlike most implementations  that  require  NUMBER  be  an
       integer,  here  NUMBER may be an arbitrary floating point number.  Given two or more argu-
       ments, pause for the amount of time specified by the sum of their values.
