My Solution for This Problem

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 yearsAlive = 27; const weeksAlive = yearsAlive * weeksPerYear;

const secsAlive = yearsAlive * weeksAlive * daysPerWeek * minsPerHour * secsPerMin; console.log(I've been alive for more than ${secsAlive} seconds!);

Same solution as myself! Although I did think about just creating another variable with the number of days per year to save multiplying quite so many variables:

const daysPerYear = 365;
const secsAlive = secondsPerDay * daysPerYear * yearsAlive;
