Divide a range of cells by a number
Hello,
I am entering minutes volunteered across a series of classrooms and dates  for example, I worked 55 minutes with one class, 85 with another, etc. I want to divide all these cells by 60 to get a decimal version of hours worked (this will be cumulative over the next 6 weeks). Could someone please tell me how to divide a range of cells by one number (in this case, 60)? Thank you!

Divide a range of cells by a number
hi
you didn't say how the range was layed out ie solid, broken, column, row one way.... =SUM(D37)/60 for a solid block in a column. another.... =SUM(D3+D5+D7)/60 for broken in a column Note: use this if you have other number between. if letters between then you can use the first formula and another.... =sum(D3+D5+C7+r29)/60 for scattered. see note at formula 2. lots of variations too.

Divide a range of cells by a number
It's actually very, very simple.... The chart looks like this:
5/1 5/2 5/5 (etc.) Tchr 1 55 0 55 Tchr 2 80 80 80 Tchr 3 65 65 30 (etc.) I am inputting the minutes above each day after school. All I want is for Excel to divide the numbers by 60 (minutes), thus giving me the fraction of an hour I worked. So it would be like: 5/1 5/2 5/5 (etc.) Tchr 1 .92 0 .92 Tchr 2 1.33 1.33 1.33 Tchr 3 1.08 1.08 0.50 (etc.) "FSt1" wrote: > hi > you didn't say how the range was layed out ie solid, broken, column, row > one way.... > =SUM(D37)/60 for a solid block in a column. > another.... > =SUM(D3+D5+D7)/60 for broken in a column Note: use this if you have other > number between. if letters between then you can use the first formula > and another.... > =sum(D3+D5+C7+r29)/60 for scattered. see note at formula 2. > > lots of variations too. > > Regards > FSt1 > > > > > "Kate" wrote: > > > Hello, > > > > I am entering minutes volunteered across a series of classrooms and dates  > > for example, I worked 55 minutes with one class, 85 with another, etc. I want > > to divide all these cells by 60 to get a decimal version of hours worked > > (this will be cumulative over the next 6 weeks). > > > > Could someone please tell me how to divide a range of cells by one number > > (in this case, 60)? > > > > Thank you!

Write the number 60 in an unused cell Select that sell and COPY Select all the cells in the range that you would like to operate on PASTE SPECIAL with the radio button for DIVIDE clicked.
