**Hour** (abbreviations: **hr, or h**): is a unit of time, conventionally counted as 1/24 of a day. In the modern metric system, it is equivalent to 3,600 seconds.

## How to Convert Hours to Minutes

*Example: How many minutes are equivalent to 24.5 hours?*

As;

1 hours = 60 minutes

24.5 hours = Y minutes

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

Y equals 24.5 times 60 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 24.5 * 60 / 1 = 1470 minutes

Answer is: 1470 minutes are equivalent to 24.5 hours.
