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
