What is two and a half hours in minutes?

We could use a bar model to help us think about this problem. The whole amount is two and a half hours. Each of these parts is an hour, so there were two hours. And this part represents half an hour. We know there are 60 minutes in one hour.

So to find the number of minutes in two hours, we need to double 60. Double six is 12; double 60 is 120. And we know that half of 60 is 30. So to find the total number of minutes in two and a half hours, we need to add together 120 and 30. Two and a half hours in minutes is 150 minutes.
