**Definitions:**

**Day** (abbreviations: **dy, or d**): is a unit of time. In common usage, it is either an interval equal to 24 hours or daytime, the consecutive period of time during which the Sun is above the horizon. As well, it is equivalent to a solar day, the period of time during which the Earth completes one rotation with respect to the Sun.

**Minute** (abbreviations: **min, or m**): is a unit of time or of angle. As a unit of time, the minute is the first sexagesimal fraction (equivalent to 1/60) of an hour, or 60 seconds.

## How to Convert Days to Minutes

*Example: How many minutes are equivalent to 34.29 days?*

As;

1 days = 1440 minutes

34.29 days = Y minutes

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 34.29 times 1440 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 34.29 * 1440 / 1 = 49377.6 minutes

Answer is: 49377.6 minutes are equivalent to 34.29 days.
