Here we will show you two different methods to convert and write 4 hours and 50 minutes as a decimal.|
Because there are 60 minutes in an hour (not 100), we can first convert the 4 hours to minutes by multiplying it by 60.
Then we add that number to the 50 minutes and divide the total by 60. Here is the math and the answer:
(4 x 60) + 50 = 290 minutes
290 / 60 = 4.833 hours
You could also make the minutes into a fraction as 50/60, which is the same as 50 divided by 60. Then you
add that result to the 4 hours. Here is the math to illustrate:
50/60 = 0.833
4 + 0.833 = 4.833 hours
