Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No thats that the answer, its meant to be in hours, minutes and seconds. I have found the hours part just cant change it to the rest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But now I got the idea. Basically to multiply the 0.43 by 60 then if there are any remainder, I mulitply by 60 again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0instead of going on into the decimals, keep the remainder of the division to "see" whats left :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm .. sounds and seems harder.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0another way is to "estimate" the time to 38 minutes; then subtract from that 7*2secs ...... 38 * 7 = 266 minutes 266/60 = 4hrs with a remainder of 26minutes 7*2 secs = 14 sec 4 hrs 25 min and 46 sec

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh thats nice. so basically the the 2 is the 6058 and 7 is the "7 times" thingy. So its basically the same as the other one you did
