    Sure. There are 60 minutes in an hour: \[1 hour = 60 minutes\] So this means: \[11,040 minutes \times \frac{1hour}{60 minutes}\] Will give you the equivalent number of hours. Furthermore, there are 24 hours in a day: \[1 day = 24 hours\] So this means you need to multiply the previous result by: \[\frac{1 day}{24 hours}\] To get the equivalent number of days.

    You seem to be multiplying instead of dividing... guess I should've made my equations clearer. Let me rewrite them: \[\frac{11,040 minutes}{60 minutes}\] Will give you the number of hours. Then, divide the following from that result: \[24 hours\] To get the number of days.

    You divide since there are more minutes in a day than hours, and more hours than days in a year... if that makes any sense.

    Okay, he worked for over 7 days, but how much over? To find out, multiply the .6666667 part by 24 to get the number of hours that is equal to 2/3 of a day.
