My seconds alive on this world!

const secsPerMinute = 60;
const minsPerHour = 60;
const hoursPerDay = 24;
const daysPerWeek = 7;
const weekPerYear = 52;

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

const yearsAlive = 28;
let secsAlive = secsPerMinute * minsPerHour * hoursPerDay * daysPerWeek * weekPerYear * yearsAlive
console.log(`I've been alive for more than ${secsAlive} seconds!`);

Hi Naoki,

Bear in mind that you have already done the calculation for seconds in a day in secsPerDay. So we can use that in secsAlive to save some time and typing:

let secsAlive = secsPerDay * daysPerWeek * weekPerYear * yearsAlive

Happy coding!
