You could also use the TimeSpan.FromMinutes() method like this:

            int Minutes = 45;
            decimal hourRate = 10.25M;
            decimal Cost = (decimal)TimeSpan.FromMinutes(Minutes).TotalHours * hourRate;
            MessageBox.Show("Cost = " + Cost.ToString());

See: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.timespan.fromminutes.aspx
