0.73 multiply by 140 = your answer

3. akovasc1998

Oh and i am an ambassador, I am here to welcome new users, Do u have any questions about the site?

19. akovasc1998

oh how much is 102.2 in hours and minutes

20. Best_Mathematician

new question = new post

21. dmezzullo

Ok so there is 60 mins in 1 hour

22. dmezzullo

@Best_Mathematician she aint gotta make a new post

23. Best_Mathematician

haha ok lol

24. dmezzullo

OK so 60 mins is 1 hour and there is 102 mins so u have 1 total hour, and some left over mins that dont totally equal an hour

25. Best_Mathematician

ok think it this way...if 1 hour has 60 min. then 2 have 120 min, 3 have 180 and so on...but u know that 102 cant be 2 hours as it is less than 120 min...so you know it is 1 hour and some more minutes. so what you do is simply subtract the left over min by 60 to get 1 hour and left over minutes

26. dmezzullo

@akovasc1998 does that answer ur question?

27. akovasc1998

ya

28. dmezzullo

ok good.
