    x(y) = y∙ (1day/86400sec) : this converts seconds into days

    y(x) = x∙ (86400sec/1day) : this converts days into seconds

    y = (8.64 x 10^4)x

    one day is:

    24 hours * 60 minutes * 60 seconds = 8.64 x 10^4 seconds

    so add an x and for every day you fill in for x, you get the amount of y seconds.

    Eg.

    1 day --> 24 hours --> 24h*60min=1440min --> 1440min*60sec--> 86400s

    Therefore, if 1 day = 86400sec

    x days = 86400y seconds

    All the best!

    Wish you hadn't said it is for a test.
