Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We know that is 311 degrees. Now we need to convert 0.678 into minutes. We can do this using proportions dw:1328396986876:dw so x = 40.68

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now we have 311 degrees 40 minutes and we use proportions again to convert 0.68 to seconds dw:1328397061366:dw where x = 40.8 and rounding to the nearest whole number we have 41. So the final answer is ..... 311 degrees 40 minutes 41 minutes
