  1. do it in seconds

    (30/26.2)( 1*3600 + 18*60 + 27) seconds

    = (30/26.2) (4707 seconds)

    = 5390 seconds

    take off one hour which is 3600 seconds

    1 hour and 1790 seconds

    note 1790/60 = 29.83
    so take off 29 minutes which is 1740 seconds

    1 hour and 29 minutes and (1790-1740)seconds
    so
    1 hour and 29 minutes and 50 seconds
