Is the answer 40:60?

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, June 6, 2013 at 7:04pmYou're partly right. Now you have to reduce this to lowest terms.

40:60 = 4:6 = 2:3

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, June 6, 2013 at 7:18pmOne way to solve this is with a proportion.

Cross multiply and solve for x.

40/60 = 60/x

40x = 3600

x = 90 minutes = 1 1/2 hours
