My Solution for totalSecondsAlive

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

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


const yearsAlive = 35;
const totalSecondsAlive = secondsPerDay * yearsAlive;
console.log(`I've been alive more than ${totalSecondsAlive} seconds!`);

Nice job Hung. My only suggestion is instead of naming your variable totalYearsAlive I would name it totalSecondsAlive since you are storing seconds. Also your first output should say seconds in an year. Instead of days per week * weeks i would use 365 days. And if you want to be more accurate 365.25 days to account for leap years

Doesn't this make the first statement wrong?

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

secondsPerDay now includes weeks per year.
