Converting a float to minutes and seconds

Hey there!

This is a quick question really.

I have a float (lets say 520) which represents the number of seconds in a journey.

I'm wanting to give a time for that journey in seconds (in the format xx minutes xx seconds) so in this case (520 seconds), it would be "8 minutes 40 seconds".

Are there a few simple lines of code that can do this please?

I've had a Google at it but I'm mostly getting back API stuff on Time and Date.

Thanks in advance.

long l = 520;

String time = ""+(l/60)+"m "+(l%60)+"s";
CEHJCommented:
int mins = (int)(f / 60);
int secs = (int)(f % 60);
StillUnAwareCommented:
oh, You said float, then simply cast it to long:

long l = (long) _any_float_here_

I'd like to split the points here to CEHJ because they supplied an answer which was in the style I asked and it's in one line.

But I'll also award points to StillUnAware for the speed and the fact that his is also correct.
