    There are 60 minutes in one hour.

    1/12 of 60 is 60/12 = 5

    Answer: 5 minutes

  • 1 decade ago

    1 hour = 60 minutes

    60 x 1/12

    = 60/12

    = 5 minutes

    60/12 = 5

  • 1 decade ago

    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.

    multiply 60 bye 1/12 (otherwise dividing 60 by 12) and u get 5 minutes

  • 1 decade ago

    (1/12)*60=60/12= 5 minutes because of one hour is 60 minutes ,you know.

    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!
