# Excel Converting decimals into hours / minutes

Hi Experts

Hope you can help

Ive searched in the database and cannot see any response relevant to my question

I have attached a quality check sheet we are using to calculate potential hours required to inspect incoming goods

This calculation is based on how many we have been told the department can perform per hour (range V2 : W4) with the formula in range M15 to Q28 using this data to divide the number required to inspect by the hourly rate

In the attached example, against the purchase order quantities, it is returning a result of 0.19 and 0.10 and when subtotalled is giving 2.57 which would suggest that the total hours is just over 2 and a half hours although im not convinced this is correct ?

Is there a way to convert the decimal total into actual hours / minutes display - Ive tried formatting but I cant seem to get the desired result? Ive highlighted the areas in question in green.

Any suggestions would be very welcome

I don't think this is valid, because:
.1 * 24 = 2.4 hours
.19 * 24 = 4.56 hours
.29 * 24 = 6.96 hours
