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.

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 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.

**Example 1:**

Convert 90 minutes to hours.

**= 90** **÷ 60**

**= 1.5 hours**

**Example 2.**

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**

**Put together**

**= 18 + 0.5**

**The flight time is 18.5 hours**

**Example 3.**

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**

**= 1 _{1}/_{2}**

**hours**

**Put together**

**= 1 + 1 _{1}/_{2}**

**Therefore, the music took 2 ^{1}/_{2} hours to shoot.**
