How to do my time sheets?
I recently started a home health job and have to keep my own time sheets. The problem is that I have to convert the hours into decimals. Ones such as 3 hrs and 30 minutes are easy (3.5) My problem is when I have to convert say 3 hrs and 20 minutes or 35 minutes. Can someone help me with this. Please not silly answers I am reall serious about this. I would appreciate any good answers!!!

well 3hrs 20 minutes is converted just like you do 3hrs 30 minutes. 20 divided 60 = .33 so it would be 3.33 hrs

Simple math: divide the 20 minutes or the 35 minutes by 60 minutes(hour) this will give you your answer.

Simply divide the number of minutes by 60...this will give you the decimal. IE: 35 divided by 60 equals: 0.58 hours. Good luck.

Convert any minute value into a decimal by dividing it by 60. For example, 30/60 = 0.5 Most people just round it to the nearest 1/4 hour for simplicity.

To convert minutes to a decimal fraction of an hour, simply divide the number of minutes by 60. You're probably limited to entering 1 or two decimal places, so you'll need to round your results... More

Depends on how accurate you want... like tenths or hundreths say tenths take the amount of time/minutes in an hour.. then round up to tenths or hundreths so roughly every 6 minutes you will go up one tenth of an hour. if you work 3 hours and 35 minutes your time will be 3.58 or 3.6

If you're using a spreadsheet for your timesheets, use separate columns for the hours and minutes. Let's say the hours are in column A and the minutes in column B. Then column C, your exact time, is calculated with the formula A+B/60... More

Simply divide the number of minutes extra by 60 like 25/60 and the result will be the decimal fraction you want.

When I do my time sheets at work I do it in fractions... Just cause it's easier for me to think in fractions. Maybe that will help.

1 hour = 60 minutes x hours = 20 minutes x= (20*1)/60 x=0.33 hours And you can use whatever number of minutes you want to... In portuguese we call this Regra de Três Simples ( three simple rule). you use it when you have 3 things that you know and a fourth that you don`t.
