An hour is a period of time equal to a twenty-fourth part of a day and night and divided into 60 minutes.

While a minute is a period of time equal to sixty seconds or a sixtieth of an hour.

**Formula to convert hours to minutes.**

To convert hrs to mins we will first need to know how they are related.

Since from the definition we are told that a minute is equivalent to a sixtieth of an hour which can also be written as 1 hour is equal to 60 minutes.

Therefore, to convert hrs to mins, we multiply the hours by 60.

**Period in Minutes = Period in Hours x 60**

**Example:**

Convert 2.5 hours to minutes.

**= 2.5 x 60**

**= 150minutes.**
