65 minutes is one hour and what minutes. Think: How many minutes are in one hour?

We’re shown a part–whole model. We know the whole amount is 65 minutes. We know that one of the parts is an hour. And we need to work out what the second part is worth. We’re told to think about how many minutes there are in one hour. There are 60 minutes in one hour. Now, we can find the missing part. It’s the difference between 60 and 65.

In other words, we need to subtract 60 from 65. Five ones take away no ones leaves us with five ones. And six take away six is nothing. So 65 take away 60 equals five. 65 minutes is one hour and five minutes. 60 plus five makes 65. The missing amount is five minutes. We know that one hour is 60 minutes. So 65 minutes is one hour and five minutes.
