How to Convert Decimal Minutes to Seconds
- 1). Choose a time in decimal minutes that you want to convert to seconds. For example, suppose you want to convert 5.75 minutes.
- 2). Multiply the decimal minutes by 60 seconds /1 minute. For example, 5.75 minutes x 60 seconds/1 minute = 345 seconds. The minute units cancel out.
- 3). Divide your answer by 60 to check your answer; 345 seconds/ 60 seconds per minute = 5.75 minutes, the original period of time in the conversion problem, so the solution is accurate.
