My solution to the coding challenge for secondsAlive.

1040688000... That's a lot of seconds. Here's my solution to this JS number challenge:

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 = 33;
const secondsAlive = yearsAlive * 31536000; // multiply yearsAlive by the number of seconds in a year.  
console.log(`I've been alive for more than ${secondsAlive} seconds!`);

Good Morning Pal,

I would assume that instead of your number 31536000 should be replaced with secondsPerDay * daysPerWeek * weeksPerYear * yearsAlive .

I hope this works for you.
