## 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 12 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 12 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

12 min → T(s)

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

T(s) = 12 min × 60 s

T(s) = 720 s

The final result is:

12 min → 720 s

We conclude that 12 minutes is equivalent to 720 seconds:

12 minutes = 720 seconds

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 second is equal to 0.0013888888888889 × 12 minutes.
