I put, "They have passed forty years". Well, even, though, the English is not great, I thought this would be correct. Why doesn't this mean, "they have passed forty years"? And if not, how would one say it as I wrote it?

Could it be 'that was forty years ago'?

Why is "essere" used in this case when "avere" was used in another example
