Fill in the blank: Two hours and 10 minutes equals what minutes.

In this question, we have to work out how many minutes there are in two hours and 10 minutes. We could use a part–whole model. We know the whole amount is two hours, 10 minutes. We could break this amount apart into two hours and 10 minutes. We know that this part is worth 10 minutes. How many minutes are there in two hours?

So if one hour is 60 minutes, two hours is double 60. We know that six plus six is 12, so 60 plus 60 is 120. Now, we just need to add together the two parts. What is 120 plus 10? It’s 130. Two hours and 10 minutes equals 130 minutes.
