Information we need to know:

1 minute = 60 seconds

1 hour = 60 minutes



How many minutes are there in 3 hours?

We know that there are 60 minutes in one hour.

We need to find 3 lots of 60 to find the answer:

3 x 60 = 180

There are 180 minutes in 3 hours.


Let's look at one more question.

An egg takes 2 minutes to boil.

How many seconds does the egg take to boil?

We know that there are 60 seconds in one minute.
