Here we will show you two different methods to convert and write 5 hours and 40 minutes as a decimal.|
Because there are 60 minutes in an hour (not 100), we can first convert the 5 hours to minutes by multiplying it by 60.
Then we add that number to the 40 minutes and divide the total by 60. Here is the math and the answer:
(5 x 60) + 40 = 340 minutes
340 / 60 = 5.667 hours
You could also make the minutes into a fraction as 40/60, which is the same as 40 divided by 60. Then you
add that result to the 5 hours. Here is the math to illustrate:
40/60 = 0.667
5 + 0.667 = 5.667 hours
