To convert 48 hours into minutes we have to multiply 48 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

48 hr → T(min)

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

T(min) = 48 hr × 60 min

T(min) = 2880 min

The final result is:

48 hr → 2880 min

We conclude that 48 hours is equivalent to 2880 minutes:

48 hours = 2880 minutes
