Formula to change mins:

  • Minutes / 60 = Decimal
    • example:   39 minutes /60 = .65   (39 divided by 60=.65)

So, since we divided to change the minutes to a decimal, we do the reverse (multiply) to change the decimal into minutes.  

  • Decimal * 60 = minutes  
    • example:  .65 * 60 = 39 minutes  (.65 times 60 = 39 minutes)
