Chapter 5 - Ratio and Proportion - Review Exercises: 60

Answer

$\frac{1}{12}$

Work Step by Step

We can write the given ratio as a fraction and then simplify in lowest terms. We know that there are 60 minutes in 1 hours, so we can write 3 hours as $(3\times60)=180$ minutes. $\frac{15minutes}{180minutes}$ Since both the denominator and numerator have the same unit, we can divide out the common unit. $\frac{15}{180}=\frac{15\div15}{180\div15}=\frac{1}{12}$
