My code has me stumped, My method is right...I think but the output begs to differ. Basically this code is supposed to convert seconds to minutes but the output is somewhat's what I have don so far.

String input = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter a value for seconds (positive whole number): ");

int second = Integer.parseInt(input);

int minutes = second/60; // number of minutes

int seconds = second/60; // number of seconds

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Numbber of Seconds is " + second + " is converted to: "
         + minutes + " minutes and " + seconds + " seconds.");

Any pointers / tips would be greatly appreciated :)

for seconds you need the remainder:

int seconds = second%60;
