In this article, we will define what an hour is and what minutes are and then we will discuss how to convert minutes to hours.
Formula to Convert Minutes to Hours.
To convert mins to hours 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 60 minutes are equal to 1 hour.
Therefore, to convert mins to hrs, we divide the minutes by 60.
Convert 90 minutes to hours.
= 90 ÷ 60
= 1.5 hours
Suppose you booked a direct 18 hour and 30 minutes flight from Kenya to New York. Calculate the flight time in hours.
Change minutes to hours.
= 30 ÷ 60
= 0.5 hours
= 18 + 0.5
The flight time is 18.5 hours
Suppose a music video took 1 hour and 90 minutes to shoot. Calculate the time it took to shoot the video in hours.
Convert min to hrs.
= 90 ÷ 60
= 11/2 hours
= 1 + 11/2
Therefore, the music took 21/2 hours to shoot.
