Hi, Please I need help with the following. Thanks

Complete the code below to create variables scoped to the secondsWorked function:

function secondsWorked(hours); totalTime; minutesInHour = 60; minutesInSecond = 60; totalTime = hours * minutesInHour * minutesInSecond; } console.log( secondsWorked(40) );

You'll make decisions on how you declare based on whether the value will change. This only applies to totalTime. Converting between seconds, minutes and hours involves constants. So

function secondsWorked(hours);
let totalTime;
const minutesInHour = 60;
const minutesInSecond = 60;
totalTime =  hours * minutesInHour * minutesInSecond; 
}
console.log( secondsWorked(40) );

As an aside the constant to convert seconds to minutes should correctly be named secondsInMinute
