# Challange: Using NSDate create a date object that is 10 days from today and call it 'futureDate'.

Im getting the error : Bummer! Your date calculation seems incorrect. Are you using the product of 10 and 'secondsPerDay'?

but when i run the code below in my Xcode the code runs correctly and im getting 27-05-2014 (10 days from today).

NSTimeInterval secondsPerDay = 60 * 60 * 24 * 10; NSDateFormatter *dateFormatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init]; // Add your code below

NSDate *today = [[NSDate alloc]init];

NSDate *futureDate = [[NSDate alloc]init]; futureDate = [NSDate dateWithTimeIntervalSinceNow:secondsPerDay];

i don't know what the problem is.

```NSTimeInterval secondsPerDay = 60 * 60 * 24;  // <--- remove the 10 from here
NSDateFormatter *dateFormatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];

NSDate *today = [[NSDate alloc]init];
NSDate *futureDate = [[NSDate alloc]init];
futureDate = [NSDate dateWithTimeIntervalSinceNow:secondsPerDay * 10]; // <--- add * 10 after seconds var.
```

See short comments, hope this helps.

PLUS

Try this:

```NSTimeInterval secondsPerDay = 60 * 60 * 24;
NSDateFormatter *dateFormatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];

NSDate *today = [NSDate date];
NSDate *futureDate = [NSDate dateWithTimeInterval:secondsPerDay * 10 sinceDate:today];
```

First time I use the backtick and to find it on French canadian keyboard, just mess

Tnx Dave Ko ,

Though very strange because i test the above code you gave me also and then it gave me a error ... mm. anyway thank u it worked!

@Guillaume Maka

aah what a coincidence i just was figuring out how i can manage to calculate the date in the past on base of the current date, thank u very much!
