We all know the basic rule for converting any unit of time into the another one, and that is to know the basic method and formula. For conversion of minutes into hours we need to use this formula, (hours= minutes ÷ 60). Now you must be aware from the presence of 60 in this formula, but to make it easily understandable you can say that it is the standard duration for minutes. As one hour has sixty minutes and that fact is going to help us in this understanding.
Easy Steps To Convert Minutes Into Hours
By using the above mentioned formula you can easily convert minutes into hours, but here are some steps explained for better understanding.
- The very initial step you should keep in mind is to divide the specific number of minutes by sixty (60), and the resultant will show you the total hour limit. Now use the number that is to the left of decimal, as number of h (hours).
- Then find the remaining numbers of minutes, by just multiplication of 60 with number of hours found in the last step.
- Then after these two steps you need to subtract the last found number from total minutes to get the remaining minutes, you can say that this step is extension of the second step.
- Now place the result in the right format of hours and numbers, that is HH:MM.
Brief Definitions Of Hours And Minutes
Both hours and minutes are the units of time, with the help of these units one can measure time. While discussing the units of time it is important for us to know that hour is the largest unit of time on earth while minute is smaller than hour but larger than seconds (will discuss in another blog).
So you can say that one hour consist of sixty minutes and one day has 24 hours, while a minute with reference to hour can be defined as 1/60. The symbol for hour is “h” and for minute is “min”.
Conversion With The Help Of Chart
Such type of conversions are hard to do, especially if the result is required in seconds. As these conversions have lengthy number limits and can be confusing if doing manually. To avoid this type of situation you can use the ready to us conversion charts, and here you can find the most easy to understand one.
