SQL Question

I need to convert minutes to hours, rounded off to 2 decimal places.I also need to display only up to 2 numbers after the decimal point. So if I have minutes as 650.Then hours should be 10.83

Here's what I have so far:

`Select round(Minutes/60.0,2) from ....`

But in this case, if my minutes is, say,630 - hours is 10.5000000. But I want it as 10.50 only(after rounding). How do I achieve this?

Answer

Could you not cast your result as `numeric(x,2)`

? Where `x <= 38`

```
select
round(630/60.0,2),
cast(round(630/60.0,2) as numeric(36,2))
```

Returns

```
10.500000 10.50
```
