What fraction of an hour is 40 minutes?
In Mathematics, fractions are represented as a numerical value that can be defined as a part of a whole.
Answer: 40 minutes is 2/3rd of an hour.
A fraction can be a portion or section of any quantity out of a whole, where, the whole can be any number, a specific value, or a thing.
1 hour = 60 minutes
40 minutes out of an hour can be written as 40/60
Fraction = 40/60
This fraction can be reduced further. (40 ÷ 20)/ (60 ÷ 20) = 2/3 and the simplified form gives us 2/3
Therefore, 40 minutes is 2/3rd of an hour.
