## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from hours to minutes is 60, which means that 1 hour is equal to 60 minutes:

1 hr = 60 min

To convert 4 hours into minutes we have to multiply 4 by the conversion factor in order to get the time amount from hours to minutes. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 hr → 60 min

4 hr → T(min)

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

T(min) = 4 hr × 60 min

T(min) = 240 min

The final result is:

4 hr → 240 min

We conclude that 4 hours is equivalent to 240 minutes:

4 hours = 240 minutes
