3. Convert the following:

(i) 20 minutes into seconds

20 minutes = (20 × 60) seconds

60 seconds = 1 mt

= 1200 seconds

(ii) 5 hours 35 minutes 40 seconds into seconds

5 hours 35 minutes 40 seconds

(5 × 60 × 60) seconds + (35 × 60) seconds + 40 seconds

18000 seconds + 2100 seconds + 40 seconds

20140 seconds

(iii) 3 ½ hours into minutes

3 ½ hours = 3 hours 30 minutes

= (3 × 60 ) minutes + 30 minutes

(iv) 12.00 noon

(v) 12.00 midnight

(i) 3.15 a.m = 3:15 hours

(ii) 12.35 p.m = 12:35 hours

(iii) 12.00 noon = 12:00 hours

(iv) 12.00 midnight = 00:00 (or) 24:00 hours

8. Calculate the duration of time

(i) from 5.30 a.m to 12.40 p.m

12.40 p.m = 12.40 hours

5.30 a.m = 5.30 hours

Duration of Time = 7.10 hours

(ii) from 1.30 p.m to 10.25 p.m

10.25 p.m = 22.25 hours (10.25 + 12.00) hrs.

1.30 a.m   = 13.30 hours (1.30 + 12.00) hrs.

Duration of Time = 8.55 hours

(iii) from 20:00 hours to 4:00 hours

4:00 hours = 28.00 hours (4 + 24) hrs.

20 hours = 20.00 hours

Duration of Time = 8.00 hours

Duration of Time = 8 hours

(iv) from 17:00 hours to 5:15 hours

5:15 hours = 29.15 hours (5.15 + 24) hours

17:00 hours = 17.00 hours
