Age of the Universe

The Age of the Universe: 15 Billion Years
The equation generally used to show the age of the Universe is shown here:
(distance of a particular galaxy)/(that Galaxy’s velocity) = (time)  or
4.6 x 10^26 cm/1×10^9 cm/sec = 4.6 x 10^ 17 sec
This equation, equalling 4.6 x 10^ 17 seconds =
“approximately fifteen billion years.”
This calculation is almost exactly the same for every galaxy that can be studied. However, because of the uncertainties of the measurements produced by these equations, only a rough estimate of the true age of the universe can be fashioned. While finding the age of the universe is a complicated process, the achievements of this knowledge represents a critical step in our understanding.  [16]
