You can use the following formula in Excel to convert minutes to hundredths:

**=B2*24**

This particular formula converts the minutes in cell **B2** into a decimal with hundredths.

For example, if cell **B2** contains **10:15** to represent 10 hours and 15 minutes, then this formula will return **10.25** to represent 10.25 hours.

The following example shows how to use this formula in practice.

**Example: Convert Minutes to Hundredths in Excel**

First, let’s enter the following dataset in Excel that shows the time (in hours and minutes) that it took for various athletes to finish some task:

Next, we can type the following formula into cell **C2** to convert the minutes in cell **B2** into a decimal with hundredths:

**=B2*24**

We can then click and drag this formula down to each remaining cell in column C:

By default, Excel will still use a time format.

To instead use a number format, highlight the cells in the range **C2:C13**, then click the **Number Format** dropdown menu from the **Home** tab along the top ribbon, then click **Number**:

The times in column C will now be shown in a decimal format:

For example:

- 10 hours and 15 minutes is equal to
**10.25**hours. - 4 hours and 29 minutes is equal to
**4.48**hours. - 2 hours and 22 minutes is equal to
**2.37**hours.

And so on.
