Time conversion

  • Locked
Hours are few, but seconds are many. Perhaps measuring time in seconds would give the illusion that we have more time than we really do? Anyway, enough philosophizing. Let's work on programming. We need to implement a method that will convert hours to seconds, and then we'll see what this gets us.

- first convert hours to minutes ==(1 hr = 60 mins) - then convert minutes to seconds == ( 1min = 60 secs) - multiply hours by minutes (60 min) - then multiply the minutes you get by seconds (60 sec) - hopefully this helps -

122 tries to understand that the problem was not asking me to convert the numbers or to multiply the hours by the seconds but to return the hour *60*60; under the public static and to print System.out.print ln(convertToSeconds (6)); and System.out.println (convertToSeconds (12));

The 2nd only says you have to convert the number of hours in seconds. you have to multiplicate seconds * minutes + hours. The 4th says you have to use System.out.println().

I printed out the correct number of seconds, adding "Number of Seconds: " to explain what I was showing yet that failed the 4th requirement. Removing the "Number of Seconds" text met the 4th requirement. This does not make sense because the requirement just said to display the result of the calls, which I did.

why not just call the println method in the convertToSeconds method instead of return and then call it from the main? what's the advantages of using that instead of what i've mentioned? as the one i've mentioned is shorter

Nothing ... I think it is just for practice. If you want to display the result of a method it is generally better to call a display method from that method rather than from the main. Otherwise you end up having to type out System.out.println(methodName()); every time instead of just methodName();
