Each day, a lion in South Africa spends 1/4 of the day watching gnus and 1/4 hours chasing gnus. Then the lion takes 4 times as much time consuming the gnus as chasing the gnus. What is the number of minutes that a lion spends a day watching, chasing and consuming gnus?

6 + 0.25 + 1 = 7.25 hours
Multiply by 60 to find the number of minutes.
