# stuck on maths

i need to make a variable that is age (my age 28 multipled by 52 multiplyed by 7 ? im stuck

days_alive.py
```age = int("28")
```

```age = 25
days = age * 52 * 7
summary = 'I am {} days old!'.format(days)
```

Here's the solution to the code chalange. In python, you multiply with "*",add with "+",divide with "/", substract with "-".

thaqnks i managed to work it out but i had to think about it but cheers

Hi Chey,

In python, you can initialize a variable with a number, without having to cast it to an int from a string.

```# the string "28" is changed (or, cast) to an integer and assigned to the variable age
age = int("28")

# the number 28 is assigned to the variable age
age = 28
```

Next up, create a variable named `days` and assign to it the math expression `age * 52 * 7`

Please let me know if this helps or not!

i think im there thanks
