(iii) 4.15 – (b) quarter past 4
(iv) 7.45 – (c) quarter to 8
(v) 2.20 – (a) 20 minutes past 2

Question 3.
Convert the following :
(i) 20 minutes into seconds
(ii) 5 hours 35 minutes 40 seconds into seconds
(iii) 3$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ hours into minutes
(iv) 580 minutes into hours
(v) 25200 seconds into hours
Solution:
(i) 20 minutes into seconds
20 minutes = 20 × 60 seconds = 1200 seconds
(ii) 5 hours 35 minutes 40 seconds into seconds ∴ 5 hours 35 minutes 40 seconds = 20,140 seconds
(iii) 3$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ hours into minutes
3$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ hours = 3 hours 30 minutes
= 3 × 60 minutes + 30 minutes
= 180 minutes + 30 minutes
= 210 minutes
∴ 3$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ hours = 210 minutes
(iv) 5580 minutes into hours
580 minutes = $$\frac{580}{60}$$ hours = 9 hours 40 minutes
∴ 580 minutes = 9 hours 40 minutes
(v) 25200 seconds into hours
25200 seconds = $$\frac{25200}{60}$$ minutes = 420 minutes = $$\frac{420}{60}$$ hours = 7 hours
∴ 25200 seconds = 7 hours Question 4.
The duration of electricity consumed by the farmer for his pump set on Monday and Tuesday was 7 hours 20 minutes 35 seconds and 3 hours 44 minutes 50 seconds respectively. Find the total duration of consumption of electricity.
Solution:
Electricity consumption on Monday = 7 hours + 20 minutes + 35 seconds
Electricity consumption on Tuesday = 3 hours + 44 minutes + 50 seconds
Total consumption = 10 hours + 64 minutes + 85 seconds
= 10 hours + (60 + 4) minutes + (60 + 25) seconds
= 1o hours + 1 hrs 4 minutes + 1 minutes 25 seconds
= 11 hours 5 minutes 25 seconds
∴ Total consumption of electricity = 11 hours 5 minutes 25 seconds

(i) From 5.30 am to 12.40 pm
= (5.30 am to 12 pm) + 12 pm to 12.40 pm
= 6 hrs 30 min + 40 min
= 6 hrs 70 min
= 7 hrs 10 min
(ii) from 1.30 pm to 10.25 p.m. (iii) from 20 : 00 hrs to 4 : 00 hrs. (iv) from 17 : 00 hours to 5 : 15 hours.  Question 9.

The required day is the first day after Thursday.
∴ 20th of July is Friday. Question 14.
(i) Convert 480 days into years
(ii) Convert 38 months into years
Solution:
(i) Convert 480 days into years.
We know that 1 year = 365 days. [∵ 480 – 365 = 115 days ]
480 days = 1 year 115 days.
115 days = $$\frac{115}{30}$$ months = 3 months 25 days
∴ 480 days = 1 year 3 months 25 days.
(ii) Convert 38 months into years
1 year has 12 months.
38 months = $$\frac{38}{12}$$ years = 3 years 2 months
∴ 38 months = 3 years 2 months.
