1. 1/3 * 5/6 = 5/18 of an hour

5/18 * 60 = 300/18 = 16.66 or about 17 minutes

2. 5/6 of 60 minutes is 50 minutes.
1/3 of 50 minutes is 1/6 of 100 minutes, or 16.66 minutes... the devil's 666 is in there lurking!

Here's a question for you:
If I add 5 + 5/4
do I get the same amount or answer as when I multiply
5 * 5/4?
If not, why not? If so, why so?
