he's right you may want to cast it as int if you want to round down minutes.

demo=> select extract ( epoch from (interval '349 second'))/60;
     ?column?
------------------
 5.81666666666667
(1 row)

demo=> select extract ( epoch from (interval '349 second'))::int/60;
 ?column?
----------
        5
(1 row)
