1. ## 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!

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

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

4. 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....

5. 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

6. That will not always give you the exact age in minutes though BMJ

7. then add the current time to that

8. 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
