• It took Sarah’s family 3 days to drive from Meriden, CT. to Miami, Florida. How many hours did it take her family to Click here next slide complete the trip?
• We know that there are 24 hours in one day. We know it took Sarah’s family 3 days. To figure out how many hours the trip took, we have to multiply 24 by 3. Once you complete the calculation, you find out that Sarah’s family took 72 hours to make the trip. Click anywhere Click for second for next step example
• Peter flew from Tampa, Florida, to New York City. His plane left Tampa at 6:34 A.M. and the flight took 3 hours 55 minutes. How many seconds Click to solve was the flight?
• We know that there are 60 minutes in 1 hour. 3 hours x 60 minutes per hour = 180 minutes. We know that there are 60 seconds in 1 minute. 180 minutes x 60 seconds = 10,800 seconds. Click anywhere Click for Main Peter’s flight was 10,800 seconds. for next step Menus
