How to Convert Seconds to Minutes
The fastest way to convert seconds to minutes is to use this formula:
minutes = seconds ÷ 60
The time in minutes is equal to the time in seconds divided by 60. Since there are 60 seconds in one minute, that's the conversion ratio used in the formula.
For example, here's how to convert 90 seconds to minutes using the formula above.
minutes = (90 sec ÷ 60) = 1.5 min
How to Convert Seconds to Minutes & Seconds
The formula above can be used to find the total minutes in decimal form, but if you want to convert seconds into minutes and seconds, then follow these steps.
- Divide the total seconds by 60 to get the total minutes in decimal form. Then, use the number to the left of the decimal point as the number of whole minutes.
- Find the remaining seconds by subtracting the whole minutes from the total minutes and multiplying the result by 60. These are the remaining seconds.
- Finally, put the even number of minutes and seconds into the form MM:SS, where MM are the whole minutes and SS are the seconds.
Seconds and minutes are both units used to measure time. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Is a Second?
