# JavaScript: Convert a given number to hours and minutes

## JavaScript Basic: Exercise-51 with Solution

Write a JavaScript application that transforms a numerical value into hours and minutes.

This JavaScript application converts a given numerical value representing minutes into hours and minutes. It calculates the hours by dividing the total minutes by 60 and the remaining minutes using the modulus operator, then formats and displays the result.

**Visual Presentation:**

**Sample Solution: **

**JavaScript Code:**

```
// Define a function named time_convert with parameter num
function time_convert(num)
{
// Calculate the number of hours by dividing num by 60 and rounding down
var hours = Math.floor(num / 60);
// Calculate the remaining minutes by taking the remainder when dividing num by 60
var minutes = num % 60;
// Return the result as a string in the format "hours:minutes"
return hours + ":" + minutes;
}
// Log the result of calling time_convert with different numeric inputs to the console
console.log(time_convert(71));
console.log(time_convert(450));
console.log(time_convert(1441));
```

Output:

1:11 7:30 24:1

**ES6 Version:**

```
// Define a function named time_convert with parameter num
const time_convert = (num) => {
// Calculate hours by dividing num by 60 and rounding down
const hours = Math.floor(num / 60);
// Calculate minutes by taking the remainder when num is divided by 60
const minutes = num % 60;
// Return the result as a string in the format "hours:minutes"
return `${hours}:${minutes}`;
};
// Log the result of calling time_convert with the given numbers to the console
console.log(time_convert(71));
console.log(time_convert(450));
console.log(time_convert(1441));
```
