This chapter is also easy because the world now lives by clock and

children learns intuitively to read the clock.

Children should know:

1 hour = 60 minutes

1 minute = 60 seconds

1 day = 24 hours.

Based on this one should be able to convert hours into minutes or seconds.

**For example converting 9 hours and 50 minutes to seconds will be as
follows:**

**Cross Multiply as follows:**

**1 hour = 60 minutes**

**9 hours = ? (how much)**

**Answer = (9 x 60)**

**
----------- = 540 minutes**

**
1**

**540 minutes + 50 minutes = 590 minutes.**

**Convert minutes to seconds**

**1 minutes = 60 seconds**

**590 minutes = ? (how much)**

**Cross multiply: 590 x 60 = 35400 seconds**

**Thus 9 hours and 50 minutes = 35400 seconds.**
