Age in Minutes
Hi, I'm trying to make a program to find my age in minutes. No, this is NOT a homework question, I don't even take programming classes, but I think it'd be sorta interesting to find out how old I am in minutes. I'm stuck, though. Like, what math stuff would I need to do to find out my age? I was thinking of finding out my age in months, which is simple enough. Then maybe find out in days. The problem with that is that every 4 years there are 366 days a year, not 365, so I'd have to include that. Then maybe to hours and then minutes. But how would I go about doing this? Thanks!

Actually never mind I got it. Pretty simple I guess I'm just dumb.

could you post the code here? I am new to c++ and would be very interested to learn from it.

in excel there is a function called days360.. Witht his you can find the number of days between 2 dates.. So find it and then convert the number of days into minutes....

Age in years: 18
18 x 365.25 days per year = 6574.5 days old
6574.5 x 1440 minutes per day = 9467280 minutes old

That will not always give you the exact age in minutes though BMJ :)

then add the current time to that

That won't work either.
example:
You are born on Jan. 1st during a leap year. One year later based on your formula, you'd be:
1 x 365.25 days old
but in actuality, you'd be 1 x 366 days old...
I've done this problem before so I know the solution :)
