Solution:

(i) d

(ii) e

(iii) b

(iv) c

(v) a

Question 3.

Convert the following:

(i) 20 minutes into seconds

(ii) 5 hours 35 minutes 40 seconds into seconds

(iii) 3 ½ hours into minutes

(iv) 580 minutes into hours

(v) 25200 seconds into hours

Solution:

(i) 20 minutes into seconds:

1 min = 60 seconds

20 min = 20 × 60 seconds

= 1200 seconds

(ii) 5 hours 35 min 40 seconds into seconds

Solution:

1 hour = 60 min

1 min = 60 seconds

1 hour = 3600 seconds

5 hours = 5 × 3600 seconds

= 18000 seconds

35 min = 35 × 60 seconds

= 2100 seconds

5 hours 35 minutes 40 seconds

= (18000 + 2100 + 40) seconds

= 20140 seconds

(iii) 3 ½ hours into minutes

Solution:

1 hour = 60 minutes

3 ½ hours = 3 hours + 30 min

= (3 × 60 + 30) min

= (180 + 30)min

= 210 min

(iv) 580 minutes into hours

Solution:

1 hour = 60 min

580 min

= \(\frac{580}{60}\) hours

= \(\frac{290}{30}\) hours

= \(\frac{29}{3}\)

= 9 \(\frac{2}{3}\)

= 9 hours 40 min

(v) 25200 seconds into hours:

Solution:

25200 seconds = \(\frac{25200}{3600}\)

= \(\frac{126}{18}\) hours

= \(\frac{63}{9}\) hours

= 7 hours

Question 4.

The duration of electricity consumed by the farmer for his pump set on Monday and Tuesday was 7 hours 20 minutes 35 seconds and 3 hours 44 minutes 50 seconds respectively. Find the total duration of consumption of electricity.

Solution:

The total duration of electricity consumed on both days

= 7 hours 20 min 35 sec + 3 hours 44 min 50 sec

= (7 + 3) hours (20 + 44) min (35 + 50) sec

= 10 hours 64 min 85 seconds

= 11 hours 5 min 25 seconds

Question 5.

Subtract 10 hours 20 min 35 seconds from 12 hours 18 min 40 seconds.

Solution:

12 hours 18 min 40 seconds

= (12 × 3600) + (18 × 60) + 40 seconds

= 43200 + 1080 + 40 seconds

= 44320 seconds

10 hours 20 min 35 seconds

= (10 × 3600) + (20 × 60) + 35 seconds

= 36000 + 1200 + 35 seconds

= 37235 seconds

Difference:

44320 – 37235

= 7085

7085 seconds = (1 × 3600) + 3480 + 5 seconds

= 1 hour 58 minutes 5 seconds

Question 6.

Question 8.

Calculate the duration of time

(i) from 5.30 am to 12.40 pm

(ii) from 1.30 pm to 10.25 pm

(iii) from 20.00 hours to 4.00 hours

(iv) from 17.00 hours to 5.15 hours

Solution:

(i) from 5.30 a.m. to 12 .40 p.m.

Duration of time from 5.30 a.m. to noon = 12 : 00 – 5 : 30 = 6 : 30 i.e 6 hours 30 minutes

From noon to 12.40 p.m the duration = 00 hours 40 minutes

Total duration = 6 hours 30 minutes + 00 hours 40 minutes

= 6 hours 70 minutes

= 6 hours + (60 + 10) minutes

= 6 hours + 1 hr 10 minutes

= 7 hours 10 minutes

∴ Duration of time from 5.30 am to 12.40 pm = 7 hours 10 minutes

(ii) From 1.30 pm to 10.25 pm

= (1.30 pm to 10.00 pm) + 25 min

= 8 hrs 30 min + 25 min

= 8 hrs 55 min

(iii) From 20.00 hours to 4.00 hours

= (20.00 hrs to 24.00 hrs) + (24.00 hrs to 4.00 hrs)

= 4 hrs + 4 hrs

= 8 hours

(iv) From 17.00 hrs to 5.15 hours

= (17.00 hrs to 05.00 hrs) + 15 min

= 12 hours + 15 min

= 12 hours 1.5 min

A clock gains 3 minutes every hour. If the clock is set correctly at 5 am, find the time shown by the clock at 7 p.m?

Solution:

Time gained for 1 hour = 3 min

Time gained for 14 hours = 1 4 × 3 minutes

= 42 minutes

So, at 7 pm, the clock shows 7 hrs 42 minutes

Question 12.
