## How to Convert Time to Decimal

**To convert time to decimal, let’s consider an example:**

**Example:** What is the decimal representation of the time 3 hours, 30 minutes, and 45 seconds?

Before performing the conversion, it’s important to remember the following relationships:

- 1 hour is equivalent to 60 minutes.
- 1 hour is equivalent to 3600 seconds.
- 1 minute is equivalent to 60 seconds.
- 1 minute is equivalent to 1/60 of an hour.
- 1 second is equivalent to 1/3600 of an hour.
- 1 second is equivalent to 1/60 of a minute.

**Convert Time Into Total Hours**

To convert the time into total hours, you can use this formula:

**Total hours = hours + (minutes / 60) + (seconds / 3600)**

In this case:

- Hours = 5
- Minutes = 28
- Seconds = 31

Total hours = 5 + (28 / 60) + (31 / 3600)

Total hours = 5 + 0.466666 + 0.008611

Total hours ≈ 5.475271 hours

So, the time 5**:28:31** is approximately equivalent to **5.4753 hours** when converted into total hours.

**Convert Time Into Total Minutes**

To convert the time into total minutes, you can use this formula:

**Total Minutes = (Hours * 60) + Minutes + (Seconds / 60)**

In this case:

- Hours = 5
- Minutes = 28
- Seconds = 31

Total Minutes = (5 * 60) + 28 + (31/ 60)

Total Minutes = 300 + 28 + 0.5166666

Total Minutes ≈ 328.5166666 minutes

So, the time **5:28:31** is approximately equivalent to 328.5167** minutes** when converted into total minutes.

**Convert Time Into Total Seconds**

To convert the time into total seconds, you can use this calculation:

**Total Seconds = (Hours * 3600) + (Minutes * 60) + Seconds**

In this case:

- Hours = 5
- Minutes = 28
- Seconds = 31

Total Seconds = (5 * 3600) + (28 * 60) + 31

Total Seconds = 18,000 + 1,680 + 31

Total Seconds = 19,711 seconds

So, the time 5**:28:31** is equivalent to **19,711 seconds** when converted into total seconds.
