    That's what I got & my teacher marked it wrong. Is that 1hr & 45 mins

  • Math -

    if we convert it into hours:

    in 1 hour there are 60 min
    so, 105 min ( 1hr/ 60 min)
    it's 1 hr. and 75 min.

    maybe you can ask your teacher about that..

    Ok. My answer was 105mins But converted to 1hr & 45 mins.

    Thanks!

    I disagree with Kazz.

    1 hour = 60 minutes

    105 - 60 = 45 minutes

    105 minutes = 1 hour and 45 minutes
