I am doing this extra credit project and I need some help. I am trying to convert 1 billion seconds into minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years.
I am starting with seconds to minutes and below is what I have so far but I cant get it to work... any ideas??

Code:

//SecondsToYears

[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#941edf]public[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#941edf]class[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#3c3c3c] SecondsToYears
{
[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#941edf]public[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#941edf]static[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#941edf]void[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#3c3c3c] main (String[] args)
{

[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#941edf]int[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#3c3c3c] sec, min, day, wks, mnths, yrs;
sec = 1000000000; [/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#e69400]//this is how many seconds to convert
[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#3c3c3c]min = (sec / 60); [/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#e69400]//first to minutes

[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#3c3c3c]System.out.print ([/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#00cb00]"That's a lot of minutes "[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#3c3c3c] + min);


}[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#e69400]// eo main

[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#3c3c3c]}[/color][/font][font=Courier New][color=#e69400]//eo SecondsToYears [/color][/font]

update... this is what I have so far

Code:
//SecondsToYears

public class SecondsToYears
{
	public static void main (String[] args)
		{

		int sec, min, day, wks, mnths, yrs;
		sec = 1000000000; //this is how many seconds to convert
		min = (sec / 60); //first to minutes
		day = (min / 24)); //To days
		wks = (day / 52); //To Weeks
		mnths = (wks / 30); //To Months
		yrs = (mnths / 12); //To Years
	
	System.out.print ("That's a lot of minutes " + min + "to be eact");
		
	System.out.print ("That's a lot of days " + day + "to be exact");
	
	System.out.print ("That's a lot of weeks " + wks + "to be exact");
		
	System.out.print ("That's a lot of months " + mnths + "to be exact");
	
	System.out.print ("That's a lot of years " + yrs + "to be exact");

		}// eo main

}//eo SecondsToYears

YEAH it works now... a little tweak here and a little tweak there, change the wording and voila...

Code:
[size=2]/SecondsToYears

public class SecondsToYears

{

public static void main (String[] args)

{

int sec, min, day, wks, mnths, yrs;

sec = 1000000000; //this is how many seconds to convert

min = (sec / 60); //first to minutes

day = (min / 24); //To days

wks = (day / 52); //To Weeks

mnths = (wks / 30); //To Months

yrs = (mnths / 12); //To Years



System.out.println ("1 Billion Seconds is approximately " + min + " minutes");



System.out.println ("1 Billion Seconds is approximately " + day + " days");



System.out.println ("1 Billion Seconds is approximately " + wks + " weeks");



System.out.println ("1 Billion Seconds is approximately " + mnths + " months");



System.out.println ("1 Billion Seconds is approximately " + yrs + " years");

}//eo main

}//eo SecondsToYears

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
