## How to Convert Seconds to Minutes

*Example: How many minutes are equivalent to 74.49 seconds?*

As;

1 seconds = 0.0166666 minutes

74.49 seconds = Y minutes

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

Y equals 74.49 times 0.0166666 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 74.49 * 0.0166666 / 1 = 1.241495034 minutes

Answer is: 1.241495034 minutes are equivalent to 74.49 seconds.
