What is 6 hours and 72 minutes as a decimal?

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
