Each minute has 60 seconds.

18.5 minutes = 18 minutes 30 seconds

Add that to 2 hr 43 min 7 seconds for the driver ahead of him, since his time (7th) will be greater.

Subtract 2 hr 37 min from the previous answer for difference between 1st and 7th.

Winner's time = 2 hours and 37 min. There are 60 minutes in an hour. Get minutes as fraction of hour and convert to a decimal.

See if these principles will help you with the other questions.
