## How to Convert Minutes to Hours

*Example: How many hours are equivalent to 36.81 minutes?*

As;

1 minutes = 0.016666666666667 hours

36.81 minutes = Y hours

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

Y equals 36.81 times 0.016666666666667 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 36.81 * 0.016666666666667 / 1 = 0.6135 hours

Answer is: 0.6135 hours are equivalent to 36.81 minutes.
