There are 60 minutes in one hour.

1/12 of 60 is 60/12 = 5

Answer: 5 minutes

1 hour= 60 minutes

1/12 hour= x

now cross multiplying, x= 60 x 1/12

so x = 5

5 minutes,!

enjoy ! you don';t have to go study hall.

1 hour = 60 mins <-- pattern: we multiply by 60

so...

1/12 hour = 60 * 1/12

1/12 hour = 5

it's 5 mins. <-- answer

: ) i like dis question

because its not all that easy but tricky!

well we all know there are 60 minutes in an hour

therefore its basically asking you to divide 60 by 12

that's 5minutes

Rite! 5 minute s

isn't dat fun!
