You can do this a few different ways. For example, if you're working on paper, you might write down the number of minutes and label it with the word "minutes." If you're using a calculator, just type in the number.

- As an example, let's say that we want to find out how many hours a 150 minute movie will be. In this case, we'll start by writing down
**150 minutes.**In the next few steps, we'll solve!

**Multiply by "1 hour/60 minutes.**

**"**Next, write (or type) a multiplication sign (×), then the fraction 1 hour/60 minutes. This fraction shows how many minutes are in an hour (60). When we multiply, we'll end up with the correct units, too (since the two "minutes") cancel out.

- This is the same as
**dividing by 60/1, or 60**. If you need help dividing and multiplying fractions, see WikiHow's help article on this topic.
