Excel formula to convert minutes into Hours and Minutes

On occasion I end up with an Excel spreadsheet that has a list of items, each of which has a duration. It’s easy to sum up the minutes and get a total number of minutes (see B7 in the picture below).

But it would be nice to see that in “x hours y minutes.” don’t you think? Yup, so do I. And that’s what I’ve done in the C9 cell in the picture below.

So without further ado, here is the Excel formula to do this

=ROUNDDOWN(B7/60,0)&" hours "&MOD(B7,60)&" minutes."

Let me know if you find this helpful.
