My solution for the secondsAlive Challenge

const secsPerMin = 60;
const minsPerHour = 60;
const hoursPerDay = 24;
const daysPerWeek = 7;
const weeksPerYear = 52;

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

const yearsAlive = 25;
const secsAlive = secsPerDay * daysPerWeek * weeksPerYear * yearsAlive
console.log(`I've been alive for more than ${secsAlive} seconds in my entire life`)

Thanks for posting this Alin Andrei Gheorghe and thank you Kelsey Donegan for pointing out that he used the "secsPerDay" variable! I agree, very clever!

Jake Boutin you're welcome man, have fun studying code! Cheers!

I didn't even think of using the secsPerDay variable that was already created. That was clever, glad I looked at your comment thanks!
