How long does it take to observe a full rotation of the sun from earth?

I know the sun rotates on it's own axis about once a month (exact time varies by attitude). But I can't find information on how long it takes to observe a full rotation. Since earth orbits the same direction that the sun rotates, it would obviously take longer than a month to record a full rotation from an earth satellite. I'm curious as to how long that would be.

    I figured it'd be a fairly simple math equation, thanks!
