# Duration toMinutes() method in Java

Java 8ProgrammingObject Oriented Programming

The value of a duration in the form of a number of minutes can be obtained using the method toMinutes() in the Duration class in Java. This method does not require any parameters and it returns the duration in the form of a number of minutes.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

## Example

Live Demo

import java.time.Duration;
public class GFG {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Duration d = Duration.ofDays(1);
System.out.println("The duration is: " + d);
System.out.println("Number of minutes in the duration is: " + d.toMinutes());
}
}

## Output

The duration is: PT24H
Number of minutes in the duration is: 1440

Now let us understand the above program.

The duration is displayed and then the number of minutes in it is displayed using the toMinutes() method. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

Duration d = Duration.ofDays(1);
System.out.println("The duration is: " + d);
System.out.println("Number of minutes in the duration is: " + d.toMinutes());
