Task 2 of age video

I have tried every way I know how, to complete this task .How do I multiply years by the number of days in a year and then assign it to days? I have tried ex: years * 365 = days 30 * 365 = days (since I am 30 yrs old.) 10950 = days 30 * 365 = days

nothing seems to work. Can someone help me?

years = 30
years * 365 = days

You should be using the assignment operator (or "=" sign) at the beginning of your declaration of the variable 'days'.

Here is what the code should look like:

years = 30
days = years * 365
