My Solution for Years Alive

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

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

const secondsPerYear = secondsPerDay * 365; const yearsAlive = 27; console.log(I've been alive for more than ${secondsPerYear * yearsAlive} seconds!);

looks good, ps right now the backticks (`) are not displaying in your console.log statements. Putting a backslash ( \ ) in front of them like this, \` will fix that though. Great job

A better way to display code is to use "Markdown" formatting. There's a pop-up "cheatsheet" below, or you can watch this video on code formatting.
