JavaScript JavaScript Numbers Working with Numbers Create a Program with Math

I have the same exact thing but mine is not returning the number.

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.');

It just returns "There are ${secondsPerDay} seconds in a day." instead of the number for " ${secondsPerDay}".

You have to use backticks instead of single quote.

Use backticks:

console.log(`There are ${secondsPerDay} seconds in a day.`)

you have single quotes:

console.log('There are ${secondsPerDay} seconds in a day.')

Wow thanks, it helped, good to see these forums active!!
