I created a variable days. this variable holds my age multiplied by 7. yet it is still wrong. why?

the question is create a variable called days that multiply the age variable by 52 , (we are going to act like today is your birthday) and multiplied by 7

days_alive.py
age = 27 
days = age * 7

The challenge part 2 says, "Now, create a variable named days that is your age multiplied by 52 (we'll pretend today is your birthday) and multiplied by 7."

So you're forgetting to multiply by 52

age = 27 
days = age * 52 * 7
