Python: Convert Minutes to Hours


If you want to convert time from minutes to hours using Python code then you need to apply the below pseudo-code,

Pseudo Logic - Convert Minutes into Hours

  1. Calculate the hours by integer division

    Logic: hours = minutes // 60
  2. Next, calculate remaining minute using Modulus operator

    Logic: remaining_minutes = minutes % 60

Example 1: Using Hardcoded minutes

'''
Python Program:
 Convert Minutes into Hours

Author: Code2care.org
Version: v1.0
Date: Fri 11 Aug 2023
'''

input_minutes = 115

# Conversion min to hours
hours = input_minutes // 60
left_minutes = input_minutes % 60

print(f"{input_minutes} minutes = {hours} hours and {left_minutes} minutes.")
Output:
115 minutes = 1 hours and 55 minutes.

75 minutes = 1 hours and 15 minutes.

135 minutes = 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Example 2: User Inputs the Minutes

'''
Python Program:
 Convert Minutes into Hours
 from user input

'''

while True:
    user_input = input("Enter the time in minutes ('e' to exit): ")

    if user_input.lower() == 'e':
        print("Program Exited.")
        break

    try:
        input_minutes = int(user_input)
        hours = input_minutes // 60
        left_minutes = input_minutes % 60
        print(f"{input_minutes} minutes = {hours} hours and {left_minutes} minutes.\n")
    except ValueError:
        print("Invalid input.\n")
Output:
Enter the time in minutes ('e' to exit): 99
98 minutes = 1 hours and 39 minutes.

Enter the time in minutes ('e' to exit): 110
110 minutes = 1 hours and 50 minutes.

Enter the time in minutes ('e' to exit): 245
245 minutes = 4 hours and 5 minutes.

Enter the time in minutes ('e' to exit): e
