# Thread: [RESOLVED] converting raw seconds

1. ## [RESOLVED] converting raw seconds

I can get the input to convert the raw seconds, than I convert the seconds to minutes based on the input and than divided by 60. I'm having travel with the last variable \$my_hours, I can't get it to convert to hours based off >raw seconds >minutes >hours

Any help would be appreciated. thanks

PHP Code:
``` \$seconds = \$seconds; \$inputname = \$_POST["how_many"]; \$my_var = \$inputname * \$seconds; \$seconds = \$seconds; \$inputname = \$_POST["how_many"]; \$my_min = \$seconds * \$inputname / 60; \$seconds = \$seconds; \$inputname = \$_POST["how_many"]; \$my_hours = \$inputname * \$my_min / 60;      ??????????  ```

2. ooppss,, i guess i would just divide by 60 twice.

sorry.. was not a well thought out question..

3. ## the hours have been fixed. but i do need help on another math problem.

The last variable "\$one_fte" stands for full time employee which would be equal to 8 hours. I'm uncertain on how to convert if 8 hours = 1 employee. Help please.

PHP Code:
``` \$seconds = \$seconds;\$inputname = \$_POST["how_many"];\$my_var = \$inputname * \$seconds;\$inputname = \$_POST["how_many"];\$my_min = \$seconds * \$inputname / 60;\$inputname = \$_POST["how_many"];\$my_hours = \$inputname * \$seconds / 60 / 60;\$one_fte = \$seconds["how_many"]{(3600>=3600)};      ??????\$inputname = \$_POST["how_many"];\$my_hours = \$inputname * \$seconds / 60 / 60;  ```

4. I used Arithmetic Operators and got it to function

\$one_fte = \$inputname * \$seconds / 60 / 60 ;
if (\$my_hours % 8==0);
