How to convert minutes to hours (min to hr)

The formula for converting minutes to hours is: hr = min ÷ 60. To calculate the minute value in hours first substitute the minute value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 minute in hours we follow these steps:

hr = min ÷ 60

hr = 1 ÷ 60

hr = 0.0166666666666666666666666666667

In other words, 1 minute is equal to 0.0166666666666666666666666666667 hours.


Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 8 minutes to hours is:

  1. Understand the conversion formula: hr = min ÷ 60
  2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 8 for min so the formula becomes: hr = 8 ÷ 60
  3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 8 ÷ 60 = 0.133333333333333333333333333333 hr

In summary, 8 minutes is equal to 0.133333333333333333333333333333 hours.


Converting hours to minutes

In order to convert the other way around i.e. hours to minutes, you would use the following formula: min = hr × 60. To convert hours to minutes first substitute the hour value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 hour in minutes we follow these steps:

min = hr × 60

min = 1 × 60

min = 60

Or in other words, 1 hour is equal to 60 minutes.


Conversion Unit Definitions

What is a Minute?

A minute is a unit of time measurement that represents 60 seconds or 1/60th of an hour. It is commonly used to measure short durations and as a unit of time on clocks and watches.
To provide an example of a minute, let's consider boiling an egg. The recommended cooking time for a soft-boiled egg is typically around 4 to 6 minutes. This means that you would place the egg in boiling water and let it cook for approximately 4 to 6 minutes before removing it.
Another example is in scheduling or time management. When discussing meeting durations, it is common to allocate a certain number of minutes for different activities. For instance, a presentation might be scheduled for 20 minutes, followed by a question and answer session of 10 minutes.
In sports, a minute is often used to measure game time or periods. For example, in basketball, each quarter consists of 12 minutes of playing time. In soccer, a game is divided into two halves, each typically lasting 45 minutes.
On digital clocks or watches, the time is displayed in hours and minutes. For example, if the clock reads "9:30," it means that it is 9 hours and 30 minutes past midnight.
In summary, a minute is a unit of time measurement that represents 60 seconds or 1/60th of an hour. The examples of boiling an egg, scheduling activities, and game durations illustrate how minutes are commonly used to measure short durations, track time, and organize events in various contexts.

What is a Hour?

An hour is a unit of time measurement that represents 60 minutes or 1/24th of a day. It is a commonly used unit for measuring time in various aspects of daily life, such as scheduling, work hours, and timekeeping.
To provide an example of an hour, let's consider a typical workday. In many countries, a standard workday consists of 8 hours. This means that employees are expected to work for 8 hours in a day, with breaks and lunchtime accounted for separately.
Another example is in travel. If you are planning a road trip and estimate that the driving distance between two cities is 300 kilometers, you can roughly calculate the travel time by considering an average driving speed. Assuming an average speed of 60 kilometers per hour, you can estimate that the travel time would be approximately 5 hours.
In television programming, shows are often scheduled to air at specific times within an hour. For instance, a show might be scheduled to start at 8:30 PM and end at 9:30 PM, indicating a duration of one hour.
On digital clocks or watches, the time is typically displayed in hours and minutes. For example, if the clock reads "3:45," it means that it is 3 hours and 45 minutes past midnight.
In summary, an hour is a unit of time measurement that represents 60 minutes or 1/24th of a day. The examples of work hours, travel time, television scheduling, and time displayed on digital clocks highlight how hours are commonly used to measure and organize time in various contexts.
