Amy watched television for 2 3/4 hours. Charles watched television for 1/3 of the time Amy did. How long, in minutes did Charles watch television.

2 3/4 - 1/3

right?

No.

You need to multiply 1/3 times 2 3/4

Since your answer must be in minutes, you should change the 2 3/4 hours to minutes.

Or you can change your answer to minutes.

11/12 can't be simplified. But you need to remember that 1 hour = 60 minutes.

Let's change 2 3/4 to minutes.

2 3/4 * 60 = 165 minutes

1/3 * 165 = 55 minutes

11/12 * 60 = 55 minutes
