Before I reveal this life changing code, I used to be a BASIC (not VB) programmer so if you reconize old basic, this will look familiar. Now with ruby, can i set a variable for a number like in basic? Like 2 + 3 = A; A - 4 =B Etc..? Well, if anyone can help let me know, Ive been dying to learn this for a while now.

This program is supposed to tell you the amount of minutes in a year, but Ive taken it a bit further. Im having it tell me the amount of minutes in an Hour, the amount of minutes in a Day, In a week, and In a year. Thank you for your time.

=begin Ruby Numbers Usual operators: + addition - subtraction * multiplication / division =end puts "60 Minutes In an Hour" puts 60 * 24 "Minutes in a Day" puts ( 60 * 24 ) * 7 "Minutes in a Week" puts ( 60 * 24 * 7) * 52 "Minutes in a Year"

Help if Possible!
