## 2. Converting Time

To convert hours and minutes to minutes,

we need to remember that there are 60 minutes in 1 hour.

For example,

1. $1 \text{ h } = 60 \text{ min }$
2. $2 \text{ h } = 120 \text{ min }$
3. \begin{align}​​\\ ​1 \text{ h } 20 \text{ min } &= 60 \text{ min } + 20 \text{ min } \\ &​=80 \text{ min } \end{align}

Question 1:

Kenny took $2 \text{ h } 25 \text{ min }$ to reach the airport by train. How long did Kenny take to reach the airport in minutes?

Solution:

Break $2 \text{ h } 25 \text{ min }$ into hours and minutes.

\begin{align}​​ 2 \text{ h } 25 \text{ min } &= 2 \text{ h } + 25 \text{ min } \\[2ex] &= 120 \text{ min } + 25 \text{ min } \\[2ex] &= 145 \text{ min } \end{align}

$145\text{ min }$

Question 2:

Write the following in minutes.

1. 60 minutes
2. 180 minutes
3. 240 minutes
4. 300 minutes

Solution:

\begin{align}​​ 5 \text{ h } &= 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } \\[2ex] &= 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min }\\[2ex] &= 300 \text{ min } \end{align}

(4) 300 minutes

Question 3:

Write the following in minutes.

1. 50 minutes
2. 60 minutes
3. 100 minutes
4. 110 minutes

Solution:

\begin{align}​​ 1 \text{ h } 50 \text{ min } &= 60 \text{ min } + 50 \text{ min } \\[2ex] &= 110 \text{ min } \end{align}

(4) 110 minutes

Question 4:

Write the following in minutes.

1. 240 minutes
2. 245 minutes
3. 285 minutes
4. 295 minutes

Solution:

\begin{align}​​ 4 \text{ h } 45 \text{ min } &= 4 \text{ h } + 45 \text{ min } \\[2ex] &= 240 \text{ min } + 45 \text{ min }\\[2ex] &= 285 \text{ min } \end{align}

(3) 285 minutes

Question 5:

The movie ‘Musical Return of Gitan’ lasted for $140 \text{ min}$. How long was the movie in hours and minutes?

Solution:

Break $140 \text{ min}$ into hours and minutes.

\begin{align}​​ 140 \text{ min } &= 120 \text{ min }+ 20 \text{ min } \\[2ex] &= 2 \text{ h }+ 20 \text{ min } \\[2ex] &= 2 \text{ h } 20 \text{ min } \end{align}

2 h 20 min

Question 6:

Look at the following.

1. 1 h
2. 1 h 2 min
3. 1 h 12 min
4. 1 h 20 min

Solution:

\begin{align}​​ 62 \text{ min } &= 60 \text{ min }+ 2 \text{ min }\\[2ex] &= 1 \text{ h } + 2 \text{ min }\\[2ex] &= 1 \text{ h } 2 \text{ min } \end{align}

(2) 1 h 2 min

Question 7:

Write in hours and minutes.

1. 2 h 5 min
2. 3h  5 min
3. 3 h 15 min
4. 4 h 25 min

Solution:

Break $185 \text{ min}$ into hours and minutes.

\begin{align}​​ 185 \text{ min } &= 60 \text{ min }+ 60 \text{ min }+ 60 \text{ min }+ 5 \text{ min }\\[2ex] &= 1 \text{ h }+ 1 \text{ h }+ 1 \text{ h }+ 5 \text{ min } \\[2ex] &= 3 \text{ h }+ 5 \text{ min }\\[2ex] &= 3 \text{ h } 5 \text{ min } \end{align}

(2) 3 h 5 min

Question 8:

Write in hours and minutes.

1. 6 h 45 min
2. 6 h 55 min
3. 7 h 45 min
4. 7 h 55 min

Solution:

Break $475 \text{ min}$ into hours and minutes.

\begin{align}​​ 475 \text{ min } &= 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min } + 60 \text{ min } + 55 \text{ min } \\[2ex] &= 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } + 1 \text{ h } + 55 \text{ min }\\[2ex] &= 7 \text{ h } + 55 \text{ min }\\[2ex] &= 7 \text{ h } 55 \text{ min } \end{align}

(4) 7 h 55 min
