all right, looks like you need to figure out how many seconds are in a year
so, 60 seconds in 1 minute, 60 minutes in 1 hour, 24 hours in 1 day, ~365 days in 1 year...
60*60*24*365

Other answers:

is how many seconds there, now if light travels 300,000km in 1 second, then light will travel x km in 60*60*24*365 seconds
thanks for your help!
on that on do i need to multiply the seconds part by 300,000?
so you have 300,000km/sec * x sec to obtain only km
so yes
then that will give me my km?
I have another question too. using the last question, the nearest star to the earth is 4.34 light years from earth. how far is that in km?
ok so you know how many km are in 1 light year
you just found that with 300,000 * (60*60*24*365)
so you a found value with km/light year
so you can multiply a value like (x light years) * ( y km/light year ) and obtain only km, the units, light years, cancel out
okay i think i finally am starting to get it
nice
