To convert 397 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 397 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

397 min → T(s)

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

T(s) = 397 min × 60 s

T(s) = 23820 s

The final result is:

397 min → 23820 s

We conclude that 397 minutes is equivalent to 23820 seconds:
