If the latter part of the number is decimal, then 59% of 60 minutes would be
the answer

1.59 minutes = 1:34 (mm:ss)

Divide it by 24 if it is hours, or by 1440 if it is minutes

Problem is - I know how to calculate this mannualy. But I need a function
that converts a decimal number of minutes ( for example , 1.59 ) to a time
format mm:ss (1:48)

Thank you for all your answers!

One way:

A1: 1,59
A2: =A1/1440

format A2 as "[m]:ss"

He probably got a decimal number and didn't know what to do with it.
Just dividing doesn't format it as time.

If he knew how to calculate it manually, it would have helped if he had
asked how he could put into a cell formula, rather than how to convert it.
