For a summer fundraiser, Rob is doing manual labor to help several families do home improvement projects. He is tracking the amount of time he spends each week with a spreadsheet. If his spreadsheet shows that during the past two weeks, he spent a total of 11,040 minutes working, how many days and hours has he worked? 6 days and 6 hours 6 days and 16 hours 7 days and 7 hours 7 days and 16 hours
@LukeBlueFive can you help me with this?
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.
66240 and 264090, thats what i am getting :( so sorry
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.
7.666667 i got final answer this
184 dividing 11040/60 184 / 24 got that 7.6666667
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.
Then you'll have the answer: 7 days and ? hours
But i m getting 184 when i multiply
Sorry got 16, you meant just multiply .666667 with 24
