Question, I did a problem and got .02 hrs. I'm confused about how to convert it to minutes. Can someone help?

    You might want to convert it with a proportion: \[\frac{ hour }{ minutes } = \frac{ hour }{ minutes }\] Replace them now: \[\frac{ 1 hour }{ 60 minutes } = \frac{ 0.2 hour }{ x }\]

    One minute and twenty seconds?

    yeah, I got the 1.2, so I assume the .2 would be the units of seconds which would make it twenty seconds

    Wait isn't it: 60 x 0.2 = 12 ?

    Ooh, you're right. Good catch. So it would be 1 minute 12 seconds. Thanks so much! You've been a great help.

    No. Just 12 minutes.

    There isn't any decimals, so just keep it simple with that.

    The original was .02 not .2. 60 * .02 = 1.2. The 1 would be a minute. Then 60 * .2 (the .2 at the end of the 1.2) would be 12 seconds. Wouldn't that be right?
