That's a week per 10
OG points, and it's in the bottle.
Secondary is basically just a clean evironment to let the yeast settle out and the beer clear itself. Any finings you wish to use or dry hopping should also be done in secondary. The beer will age in secondary, but most people don't really count that as part of the aging time.
