#### Calculation problem #3

I have a spreadsheet in which I am trying to calculate
seconds into minutes.  However, when I do so, it converts
incorrectly.
The example: I am trying to convert 162 seconds into
minutes.  I have tried 162/60, and CONVERT
(162,"sec","mn"), and each time I get a value of 2.7.
There is no such thing as 2.7 minutes.  It should be
returning 3.1 minutes.
Any suggestions?

I tried that, and get a result of 02:42.  It should be
03:10.  Am I doing something wrong?

Hi
162 seconds = 2 minutes and 42 seconds!
so 2:42 is correct. How did you calculate a value of 3:10 minutes?

Help with mailing list!! If 3+ people @ 1 address, send 2, if 5+ s
