    Default Converting Minutes

    So I am trying to make a program where it converts minutes to hours and days. I have the hours part correct. Now I am trying to get the days part. I can not understand how to get it. Could someone help?

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class MinutesConversion
    public static void main(String[] args)
    int minutes;
    int hours;
    Scanner input= new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.print("Enter Minutes:");
    minutes = input.nextInt();
    hours= (minutes / 60);
    minutes %=60;
    System.out.print(hours + ":"+minutes);

    To find day, you can use
    days = hours/24;
    Whatever you are, be a good one
