Here we will show you two different methods to convert and write 6 hours and 72 minutes as a decimal.
Method 1:
Because there are 60 minutes in an hour (not 100), we can first convert the 6 hours to minutes by multiplying it by 60.
Then we add that number to the 72 minutes and divide the total by 60. Here is the math and the answer:
(6 x 60) + 72 = 432 minutes
432 / 60 = 7.200 hours
Method 2:
You could also make the minutes into a fraction as 72/60, which is the same as 72 divided by 60. Then you
add that result to the 6 hours. Here is the math to illustrate:
72/60 = 1.200
6 + 1.200 = 7.200 hours
