    8.559 minutes = 8 minutes and 34 seconds, like it says. Which is 514 seconds.

    8.559 minutes = 8 minutes + 0.559 minutes.

    Now, 0.559 minutes = 0.559 * 60 seconds (as there are 60 seconds in a minute) = 33.54 seconds.

    Thus the total is 8 minutes and 33.54 seconds, which can be rounded to 8 minutes and 34 seconds (to the nearest second).
