24 seconds: I used Anaconda, a coding platform that enabled me to use Python. Using Spyder in Anaconda, I used programming packages like Numpy and Matplotlib to analyze data on the intensity of solar flares, the number of solar flares, and the number of sunspots. My mentor provided all the data and taught me how to navigate Spyder to create multiple graphs to analyze the relationship between solar flares and sunspots.

7 words: Analyzing relationships between sunspots and solar flares.
