Question 1.
Convert the following:
(i) 4 hours = _____ minutes
(ii) 240 minutes = ____ hours
(iii) 30 minutes = _____ seconds
(iv) 3600 seconds = _____ hours
(v) 2 hours = _____ seconds
Solution:
(i) 4 hours = 240 minutes
4 hours = 4 × 60 minutes = 240 minutes
(ii) 240 minutes = 4 hrs
240 minutes = $$\frac{240}{60}$$ = 4 hrs
(iii) 30 minutes = 1800 seconds
30 minutes = 30 × 60 seconds = 1800 seconds
(iv) 3600 seconds = 1 hrs
3600 seconds = $$\frac{3600}{60}$$ minutes = 60 minutes = $$\frac{60}{60}$$ hours = 1 hour
(v) 2 hrs = 7200 seconds
2 hrs = 2 × 60 minutes = 120 minutes = 120 × 60 seconds = 7200 seconds

Question 1.
Convert the 12-hour format into the 24-hour format and vice versa.

Solution:
10 : 40 a.m. = 10 : 40 hours
11 a.m. = 11 : 00 hours
1 : 15 a.m. = 01 : 15 hours
5 a.m. = 05 : 00 hours
16 : 20 hours = 4 : 20 p.m.
00 : 40 hours = 12 :40 a.m.
1 p.m. = 13 : 00 hours
11 : 15 p.m. = 23 : 15 hours
3 p.m. = 15 :00 hours
12 midnight = 00 : 00 hours
12 : 25 hrs = 00 : 25 p.m.
