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 42 hours into minutes we have to multiply 42 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

42 hr → T(min)

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

T(min) = 42 hr × 60 min

T(min) = 2520 min

The final result is:

42 hr → 2520 min

We conclude that 42 hours is equivalent to 2520 minutes:

42 hours = 2520 minutes
