## 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 5.3 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 5.3 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

5.3 min → T(s)

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

T(s) = 5.3 min × 60 s

T(s) = 318 s

The final result is:

5.3 min → 318 s

We conclude that 5.3 minutes is equivalent to 318 seconds:

5.3 minutes = 318 seconds

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 second is equal to 0.0031446540880503 × 5.3 minutes.

Another way is saying that 5.3 minutes is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0031446540880503 seconds.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that five point three minutes is approximately three hundred eighteen seconds:

5.3 min ≅ 318 s

An alternative is also that one second is approximately zero point zero zero three times five point three minutes.
