Don't think about seconds…

If you stare at the second hand for a long time, you can feel how quickly and irretrievably time is slipping away.. Enough gawking at the second hand. Instead, let's figure out a task involving seconds.

The assignment is very confusing. I'll just assume it is a great way to be realistic ? At least, even with that, I managed to do the task, I hope this means I'm doing some progress...

I think it easy because from the title "Don't think about seconds…" . The code makes us to scare!!

The task wasn't clear to me. I had to check the help section, then I understood, actually it was a very simple task.

I think we need to reassign the int variable secondsAfter15 , multiply by 60 and print the total

Perhaps they are illustrating something you might bump into in the field? Or to use naming in our code that matches the requirements to prevent this kind of confusion. /shrug

This is flagged as "hard" while it basically only asks you to do a multiplication. If the instructions were referring to random times that would be much harder but since my simple solution was accepted I assume it was correct? Are we supposed to use some other classes/methods that were mentioned before or convert time to epoch?
