**Definitions:**

**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Minutes to Days

*Example: How many days are equivalent to 44.97 minutes?*

As;

1 minutes = 0.00069444 days

44.97 minutes = Y days

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

Y equals 44.97 times 0.00069444 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 44.97 * 0.00069444 / 1 = 0.0312289668 days

Answer is: 0.0312289668 days are equivalent to 44.97 minutes.
