#### How do you calculate decimals?

How to Calculate Decimal from Time. To get the total decimal hours we use the formula: h = hours + (minutes / 60) + (seconds / 3600). To get the total decimal minutes we use the formula: m = (hours * 60) + minutes + (seconds / 60). To get the total decimal seconds we use the formula: s = (hours * 3600) + (minutes * 60) + seconds.
