Divide the number of seconds by 3600.
(That’s because there are 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour. 60 x 60 = 3600.)
For example, if you had 5400 seconds, that would be:
5400 / 3600
= 54/36
= 6/4
= 3/2
= 1½ hours
Or if you had 360 seconds:
= 360/3600
= 1/10 hour
(or 0.1 hour)
Edit: For converting minutes into hours, divide by *60*.
3 minutes / 60 minutes/hr = 1/20 hour
= 0.05 hours

Seconds To Hours

How many 30 seconds are in 1 hour?

You just need to remember your conversion factors.
so 1 hour = 60 minutes
1 minute = 60 seconds
so then 1 hour = 60 minutes x 60 seconds in a minute = 3600
so 1 hour= 3600seconds
to turn 3 minutes into hours you can either solve it by using the conversion factor or setup a proportion, which is essentially the same thing.
so normally you have 60 minutes in 1 hour so: 60m/1h
now you have 3 minutes in x hours. so 3m/x
so set them equal to each other:
60m/1h = 3m/x
cross multiply to get:
60x = 3
and solve.
so divide both sides by 60:
60x/60 = 3/60
and you get:
x= 3/60
which simplifies to 1/20
so 3 minutes is 1/20th of an hour… or 0.05 hours.

you multiply 3600 to convert seconds into hours because 60 secs* 60 mins =3600 secs
but the thing you said about 3 mins into hours is 1 twentieth of an hour

1 hour=3600 seconds

RE:
HOW DO I CONVERT SECONDS TO HOURS?

1 hour = 60 * 60 = 3600 seconds
use this relation to get your answer.

well there is 60seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour. 60×60 is 3600. 60 seconds / 3600 is 0.017 hours…

1 hr = 60 min.
1 min = 60 ses.
1 hr = 60 min = 60 × 60 = 3600 sec.
60 min = 1 hr.
3 min = 3/60 = 1/20 hr = 0.05 hr
