One-fourth of an hour equals blank
Our question is asking us about
minutes. And we’ve been given some amount
out of an hour. To solve this problem, we’ll have
to ask how many minutes are in one hour, before we can answer how many minutes are
in one-fourth of an hour. One hour is 60 minutes. Now we can say one-fourth of 60
minutes equals how many minutes.
We’ll solve the question by
dividing 60 minutes by four. Four goes into six one time. One times four is four. From there, we need to subtract
four from six. Six minus four is two. Bring down your zero. And then ask the question, how many
times does four go into 20? Four goes into 20 five times. Five times four equals 20. 20 minus 20 equals zero.
60 divided by four equals 15. And that tells us that one-fourth
of 60 minutes equals 15 minutes. One-fourth of an hour equals 15
