An example:
Distance (8 kilometers) / Speed (100 km/h) * 3600 = Time (288 seconds)

But when I format the Time-cell for mm:ss I just get 00:00.
How do I get the Time to show as 4:48?

Thanks

Try dividing your result by 86400 (the number of seconds in a day).

Example, if your formula is in A1
Code:
=a1/86400
and format as mm:ss or hh:mm:ss
