00:00:00.440 --> 00:00:03.360
One-fourth of an hour equals blank minutes.
00:00:04.640 --> 00:00:07.240
Our question is asking us about minutes.
00:00:07.880 --> 00:00:10.720
And we’ve been given some amount out of an hour.
00:00:11.640 --> 00:00:22.440
To solve this problem, we’ll have to ask how many minutes are in one hour, before we can answer how many minutes are in one-fourth of an hour.
00:00:23.480 --> 00:00:26.080
One hour is 60 minutes.
00:00:26.800 --> 00:00:33.480
Now we can say one-fourth of 60 minutes equals how many minutes.
00:00:34.520 --> 00:00:38.800
We’ll solve the question by dividing 60 minutes by four.
00:00:39.720 --> 00:00:43.960
Four goes into six one time.
00:00:44.640 --> 00:00:46.680
One times four is four.
00:00:47.440 --> 00:00:50.360
From there, we need to subtract four from six.
00:00:50.880 --> 00:00:53.720
Six minus four is two.
00:00:54.560 --> 00:00:55.960
Bring down your zero.
00:00:56.560 --> 00:01:03.080
And then ask the question, how many times does four go into 20?
00:01:04.200 --> 00:01:08.520
Four goes into 20 five times.
00:01:09.080 --> 00:01:11.880
Five times four equals 20.
00:01:12.600 --> 00:01:16.280
20 minus 20 equals zero.
00:01:17.280 --> 00:01:20.320
60 divided by four equals 15.
00:01:21.040 --> 00:01:26.040
And that tells us that one-fourth of 60 minutes equals 15 minutes.
00:01:26.800 --> 00:01:31.120
One-fourth of an hour equals 15 minutes.
