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. 
i got 11/12 so i guest your reduce it in order to find the 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

I just realize it
anyways thank you soo much for making this clear for me to understand this problem
because at first I was struggling
again thank you! :) 
You're very welcome, Laruen.
