Hello Phil,

You are doing great! You have the right idea in mind :+1:

But be careful.

  • :warning: You did not assign the days calculated to a variable called days. The challenge asked you to do so.
  • :warning: If you put a variable name in quotes, Python will think it is a string, which is a piece of text. Obviously you do not need any text to solve the problem, you only need numbers. So to actually get the value within years, you need to remove the quotes.

Once you've fixed the second line, it should look somewhat like this:

days = 365 * years

Happy coding! :zap: ~Alex
