My Solution for how many seconds alive

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 secondsPerYear = secondsPerDay * daysPerWeek * weeksPerYear;
console.log(`There are ${secondsPerYear} seconds in a year.`);

// Seconds Alive Calculations

const yearsAlive = 39; // My Age
const secondsAlive = yearsAlive * secondsPerYear
console.log(`I have been alive for ${secondsAlive} seconds!`)
