Golang : Convert seconds to minutes and remainder seconds


You have an input seconds in integer that you want to convert into minutes and remainder seconds. How to do that?


The secondsToMinutes() function below will first get the minutes from the given input seconds and then calculate the remainder seconds.

Here you go!

 package main

 import (

 func secondsToMinutes(inSeconds int) string {
 minutes := inSeconds / 60
 seconds := inSeconds % 60
 str := fmt.Sprintf("d:d", minutes, seconds)
 return str

 func main() {
 fmt.Println("3600 seconds in minutes : ", secondsToMinutes(3600))
 fmt.Println("9999 seconds in minutes : ", secondsToMinutes(9999))
 fmt.Println("660 seconds in minutes : ", secondsToMinutes(660))
 fmt.Println("1234567890 seconds in minutes : ", secondsToMinutes(1234567890))



3600 seconds in minutes : 60:00

9999 seconds in minutes : 166:39

660 seconds in minutes : 11:00

1234567890 seconds in minutes : 20576131:30
