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
