# Golang : Convert seconds to minutes and remainder seconds

Problem:

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

Solution:

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 (
"fmt"
)

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))

}
``````

Output:

3600 seconds in minutes : 60:00

9999 seconds in minutes : 166:39

660 seconds in minutes : 11:00

1234567890 seconds in minutes : 20576131:30
