# HOW DO I CONVERT SECONDS TO HOURS?

i have to turn 3 minutes into hours. how does that work?

• 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:

• 1 hour = 60 * 60 = 3600 seconds

• 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
