    Using the decimal to time converter

To use the tool, simply enter the decimal time and it will be converted to hours and minutes below. Enter either decimal hours or minutes. These calculations are common when preparing work hour timesheets for payroll purposes.

For example, enter 7.25 in decimal and the output will be 7 hours and 15 minutes. Alternatively, if the decimal time is in minutes, enter the number of minutes, for example 125, to see it converted to hours and minutes: 2 hours and 5 minutes in this example.

    Time to decimal conversion

To convert hours and minutes to decimal time first divide the number of minutes by 60 to get what fraction of an hour those minutes represent. Then simply put the result to the right of a decimal expression of the number of hours to get the decimal time.

Example 1: convert 5 hours and 45 minutes to decimal. Solution: divide 45 minutes by 60 to get .75 hours. Then simply put it after "5" to get the answer of 5.75.

Example 2: a worker has logged 7 hours and 15 minutes. How many hours should he log into the daily payroll timesheet? Solution: divide 15 minutes by 60 to get .25 hours. Then simply put it after "7" to get the answer of 7.25 hours in decimal.

If the minute to decimal conversion seems difficult, you may want to use a conversion table instead.
