Question: Use the date formatter object to create a string representation of the dateOfBirth. First, set the time style to be a short time style and the date to be of a medium style. Use the modified date formatter to create a string from the dateOfBirth date and store it in a variable named stringDate. Hint: Check out the Managing Formats and Styles under the NSDateFormatter class reference.

import Foundation
let secondsSinceBirth = NSTimeInterval(1200000000)
var dateOfBirth = NSDate(timeIntervalSince1970: secondsSinceBirth)
let dateFormatter = NSDateFormatter()
