#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be converting units of time to solve problems.

Information we need to know:

1 minute = 60 seconds

1 hour = 60 minutes

1 day = 24 hours

1 week = 7 days

1 year = 12 months

Example

How many minutes are there in 4 hours?

We know that there are 60 minutes in one hour.

We need to find 4 lots of 60 to find the answer:

4 x 60 = 240

There are 240 minutes in 4 hours.

Example 2

Lilah is 4½ years old.

How many months old is she?

We know that there are 12 months in one year.

In 4 years there will be 48 months (4 x 12)

In half a year there will be 6 months (12 ÷ 2)

48 + 6 = 54

Lilah is 54 months old.

Now it's your turn to have a go.
