Time Conversion

Here are useful units of measure to know

Example 1:

Do the following conversions. Round to nearest tenth where necessary. 4 day = hr We know that there are 24 hours in 1 day so 4 day × = × = 96 hr So, 4 day = hr

We know that there are 24 hours in 1 day so

So, 4 day = hr

Example 2:

Do the following conversions. Round to nearest tenth where necessary. 36 mo = yr We know that there are 12 months in a year so 36 mo × = × = 3 yr So, 36 mo = yr

We know that there are 12 months in a year so

So, 36 mo = yr

Example 3:

Do the following conversions. Round to nearest tenth where necessary. 1800 s = hr To convert seconds to hours, there are multiple steps: seconds --> minutes --> hours Step 1: Convert seconds (s) to minutes (min) by multiplying 1 min / 60 s 1800 s × Step 2: Convert minutes (min) to hours (hr) by multiplying 1 hr / 60 min 1800 s × × Step 3: Solve the equation 1800 s × × = ^{30}1800 s × × = = 0.5 hr So, 1800 s = hr Copyright Accurate Learning Systems Corporation 2008.MathScore is a registered trademark.

1800 s ×

1800 s × ×

1800 s × × = ^{30}1800 s × × = = 0.5 hr So, 1800 s = hr Copyright Accurate Learning Systems Corporation 2008.MathScore is a registered trademark.

So, 1800 s = hr
