## 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 4.2 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 4.2 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

4.2 min → T(s)

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

T(s) = 4.2 min × 60 s

T(s) = 252 s

The final result is:

4.2 min → 252 s

We conclude that 4.2 minutes is equivalent to 252 seconds:

4.2 minutes = 252 seconds

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 second is equal to 0.003968253968254 × 4.2 minutes.

Another way is saying that 4.2 minutes is equal to 1 ÷ 0.003968253968254 seconds.

## Approximate result

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

4.2 min ≅ 252 s

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