Physics (batteries)

Question:
After five minutes of use, a 1Ah capacity battery has lost 0.5Ah of capacity. Calculate the average current draw over the five minute period.

Believe it or not, I haven't actually been set this question as homework.
I am merely curious and constructed it myself. I am fairly certain that it can be answered, but I'm not sure how. Help of any sort would be appreciated :)

  1. capacity= current*timeinHours
    .5Ah= current(5/60) solve for current
