How I Solved it.

const secondsPerMin = 60; const minPerHour = 60; const hoursPerDay = 24; const daysPerWeek = 7; const weeksPerYear = 52;

const secondsInADay = secondsPerMin * minPerHour * hoursPerDay; console.log( there are ${secondsInADay} seconds in a day);

const yearsAlive = prompt('how many years young are you?'); const secondsPerYear = secondsInADay * minPerHour * hoursPerDay * daysPerWeek * weeksPerYear; const usersAge = secondsPerYear * yearsAlive;

console.log(I been alive for more than ${usersAge} seconds!)

It should be SecondsPerDay * daysPerWeek * weeksPerYear * yearsAlive.

because you have already got the Seconds in a day you do not need to multiply that with minutes per day and hours per day

How I solved it

const secsPerMin = 60; const minsPerHour = 60; const hoursPerDay = 24; const daysPerWeek = 7; const weeksPerYear = 52;

const secondsPerDay = secsPerMin * minsPerHour * hoursPerDay; console.log (There are ${secondsPerDay} seconds in a day.);

const yearsAlive = 32; const daysAlive = 7* 52* 32; const secsYearsAlive = secondsPerDay * daysAlive console.log(I've been alive for more than ${secsYearsAlive} seconds!);
