PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this article, we will learn about the solution to the problem statement given below.

Problem statement: We are given time, we need to convert seconds into hours & minutes to seconds.

There are three approaches as discussed below−

Approach 1: The brute-force method

Example

 Live Demo

def convert(seconds):
   seconds = seconds % (24 * 3600)
   hour = seconds // 3600
   seconds %= 3600
   minutes = seconds // 60
   seconds %= 60
   return "%02d:%02d:%02d" % (hour, minutes, seconds) #formatting
n = 23451
print(convert(n))

Output

06:30:51

Approach 2: The datetime module

Example

 Live Demo

#using date-time module
import datetime
def convert(n):
   return str(datetime.timedelta(seconds = n))
n = 23451
print(convert(n))

Output

6:30:51

Approach 3: THe time module

Example

 Live Demo

#using time module
import time
def convert(seconds):
   return time.strftime("%H:%M:%S", time.gmtime(n))
n = 23451
print(convert(n))

Output

06:30:51

Conclusion

In this article, we have learned about how we can convert seconds into hours, minutes and seconds.
