Next, you want to calculate the hours, minutes, and seconds left in the year. The Math.

fractional part of the current day remaining. You need to convert this value to hours. You
can do this by multiplying the fractional part by 24 (the number of hours in a single day)
using the following command:
var hours = (days - Math.floor(days))*24;
