## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from minutes to seconds is 60, which means that 1 minute is equal to 60 seconds:

1 min = 60 s

To convert 0.4 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 0.4 by the conversion factor in order to get the time amount from minutes to seconds. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 min → 60 s

0.4 min → T(s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the time T in seconds:

T(s) = 0.4 min × 60 s

T(s) = 24 s

The final result is:

0.4 min → 24 s

We conclude that 0.4 minutes is equivalent to 24 seconds:

0.4 minutes = 24 seconds

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 second is equal to 0.041666666666667 × 0.4 minutes.

Another way is saying that 0.4 minutes is equal to 1 ÷ 0.041666666666667 seconds.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that zero point four minutes is approximately twenty-four seconds:

0.4 min ≅ 24 s

An alternative is also that one second is approximately zero point zero four two times zero point four minutes.
