## How to Utilize This Calculator for Audiobook Speed Calculation

### When using this calculator, follow these steps to calculate the speed of an audiobook:

Input the total duration of the audiobook.

Specify the desired playback speed (e.g., 1.25, 2, or 0.5).

Based on these inputs, the calculator will automatically determine the total playing time of the audiobook at the given speed (e.g., 1.25).

## Mathematical Formula

### To calculate the total time in seconds, use the following formula:

Total time in seconds = [(Hours * 3600) + (Minutes * 60) + Seconds] / Playback Speed

Example: How long will it take to listen to a 2-hour audiobook at a speed of 1.5?

Let's calculate the total time for listening to a 2-hour audiobook at a playback speed of 1.5.

### Using the formula:

Total time in seconds = [(Hours * 3600) + (Minutes * 60) + Seconds] / Playback Speed

### For our example, we have:

Hours = 2 Minutes = 0 Seconds = 0 Playback Speed = 1.5

### Calculating the total time in seconds:

Total time in seconds = [(2 * 3600) + (0 * 60) + 0] / 1.5 Total time in seconds = (7200 + 0 + 0) / 1.5 Total time in seconds = 7200 / 1.5 Total time in seconds = 4800

### To convert the total time to minutes, we divide it by 60:

Total time in minutes = 4800 / 60 Total time in minutes = 80

### The whole number part represents the minutes. For the remaining hours, we divide the total time in minutes by 60:

Total time in hours = 80 / 60 Total time in hours = 1.33333

Therefore, the total time to listen to the 2-hour audiobook at a speed of 1.5 is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Answer: Listening to a 2-hour audiobook at a speed of 1.5 should take approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes.
