1 min = 60 seconds

2 min = 2*60 = 120 seconds...

# 60 seconds and one minute aren't really the same?

This is a bit of a random question, but the answer ha sbeen bugging me for a long time. Ok so...

On a microwave, if you push 60, then it will cook for 60 seconds or 1minute (following me?)

AND also if you press 1:00 it will cook for 1 minute (right? right!)

okay well my question is...

if you add 1:00 and 1:00 is = 2:00 right? so you can cook food for total of two minutes.

BUT if you add 60seconds + 60 seconds it will only cook for one minute and twenty seconds. Even though 60 seconds is 1 minute?

(I know, confusing question, right?)

I guess put into simpliest terms, How come 1 miniute plus one minute = 2 minutes but 60 seconds + 60 seconds = 120 seconds?

- they are the same time00
- Just as 24 hours is one day, 120 seconds is 2 minutes. You clicked two minutes and you got 2 minutes. What is the problem?00
- 1 minute+1 minute = 2 minutes

60 seconds+60 seconds = 120 seconds

*converting*

120 seconds to minutes

120 seconds x 1 minute/60 seconds = 2 minutes

Therefore, 60 seconds and one minute is the same20 - They are exactly the same.00

- We got a genius here I mean stupid Stark raving idiot you should be00
- I don't think they are since they arn't spelled the same00
- WHat?00
- Because your 120 is not one minute 20 seconds. 1 minute 20 seconds is actually 80 seconds. Now can someone give me back the two minutes of my life this has wasted00
