    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

    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
