3 hours * 60 mins = 180 mins

## How to go from minutes to hours

In the same way, as before, we can apply the inverse change although in this case, we need to** divide by 60** to convert to hours. For example, let's find out how many hours are 90 minutes:

90 mins / 60 = 1.5 hours.

As you can see, it is very difficult to make a mistake in such simple conversions, but if you have any doubts, the best thing to do is to use our tool that will automatically make the change for you, saving you time and any mistake you may make.
