An hour is a unit of time equal to 60 minutes, or 3,600 seconds. It is commonly used to measure the duration of an event or activity.

To convert hours to minutes, you can use the following formula:

Number of minutes = Number of hours × 60

For example, to convert 2 hours to minutes:

2 hours × 60 = 120 minutes

Hours are often represented using the symbol "h". For example, 3 hours can be written as 3h.

1. How many minutes are there in 4 hours?

Number of minutes = 4 hours × 60 = 240 minutes

2. If a movie is 2 hours and 30 minutes long, how many minutes is that in total?

Total minutes = 2 hours × 60 + 30 minutes = 120 minutes + 30 minutes = 150 minutes

- Convert 5 hours to minutes.
- If a car travels at an average speed of 60 miles per hour, how far will it travel in 3 hours?
- A recipe requires 1 hour and 45 minutes to bake. How many minutes is that in total?

Now you can try solving these practice problems to test your understanding of hours!

Geometry and Measurement: Analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures by using distance and angle

Students use fundamental facts about distance and angles to describe and analyze figures and situations in two- and three-dimensional space and to solve problems, including those with multiple steps. They prove that particular configurations of lines give rise to similar triangles because of the congruent angles created when a transversal cuts parallel lines. Students apply this reasoning about similar triangles to solve a variety of problems, including those that ask them to find heights and distances. They use facts about the angles that are created when a transversal cuts parallel lines to explain why the sum of the measures of the angles in a triangle is 180 degrees, and they apply this fact about triangles to find unknown measures of angles. Students explain why the Pythagorean Theorem is valid by using a variety of methods - for example, by decomposing a square in two different ways. They apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find distances between points in the Cartesian coordinate plane to measure lengths and analyze polygons and polyhedra.
