How I solved the seconds alive challenge

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 = 23; 
const daysAlive = 23 * 365;
const secsYearsAlive = daysAlive * secondsPerDay; 

console.log(`I've been alive for more than ${secsYearsAlive} seconds`);

Wonderful solution Michaela Pecot! :fire:

My only suggestion would be to utilize your yearsAlive variable as part of the equation for the daysAlive variable, instead of the hardcoded 23:

const daysAlive = yearsAlive * 365;
