minutes

Duration in minutes

Syntax

``M = minutes(X)``

Description

example

````M = minutes(X)` returns an array of minutes equivalent to the values in `X`. If `X` is a numeric array, then `M` is a `duration` array in units of minutes.If `X` is a `duration` array, then `M` is a `double` array with each element equal to the number of minutes in the corresponding element of `X`. The `minutes` function converts between `duration` and `double` values. To display a duration in units of minutes, set its `Format` property to `'m'`.```

```X = magic(4); M = minutes(X)```
```M = 4x4 duration 16 min 2 min 3 min 13 min 5 min 11 min 10 min 8 min 9 min 7 min 6 min 12 min 4 min 14 min 15 min 1 min ```

Create a `duration` array.

`X = hours(2:10:38) + minutes(30)`
```X = 1x4 duration 2.5 hr 12.5 hr 22.5 hr 32.5 hr ```

Convert each duration in `X` to a number of minutes.

`M = minutes(X)`
```M = 1×4 150 750 1350 1950 ```
