# Thread: Converting mm:ss to seconds and dividing

1. Hello:

I want to calculate a throughput. Ex. 1.59MB took 1:02 (mm:ss) to transfer.

A1=1.59 A2=1:02 (mm:ss)
A3 should be 1.54(rounded)(mm:ss)

Simple division, except the Text value in A2 does not work? I can take (1.59/62)*60 to calc MB/min. I need to reference the previous cell instead of the number 62.

Do I need to convert to seconds (and how) then divide, and then what format do I use?

Is this a repost?

What is 62? Which is the previous cell?

What are you trying to determine: amount transfered per second or per minute?

in A3 put =A1/(A2*86400)*60
but this will give the answer 1.53870967741935
which formatted as number to 2 decimals 1.54

is this what you need?

Per Minute or Second

5. Yes this is a repost.
I am looking for MB/min.
The 62 is one min, 2 seconds in seconds.

The A1/(A2*86400)*60 formula works great.

Thanks all.
