    Default Just need a little input and help please!

    This is my first time really working with Java and I am in a class that has us writing Java codes. Here is what I am stuck on in the assignment:

    Add a code that calculates the hours, minutes, and seconds needed to download this file with a 56K analog modem. To do the calculations, assume that a 56K modem can transfer data at a rate of 5.2 kilobytes (KB) per second. Then, add the code for displaying the results.

    I am having trouble figuring out how to write this part of the code. Can someone please help me??

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you write the needed formulas and/or equations needed to compute the results manually?
    Some basics: 1 hour = 60 minutes and 1 minute = 60 seconds.
    Given the seconds, you can compute the hours, minutes and seconds.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
