## Memorandum

1.1 2 h 16 min = 18 h 8 min

2 h 16 min + 15 h 52 min = 17 h 68 min

1.2 15 h - 8 h 27 min = 6 h 33 min

15 h 00 min - 8 h 27 min = 6 h 33 min

1.3 8 h 6 min - 2 h 45 min = 5 h 21 min

8 h 06 min – 2 h 45 min = 5 h 21 min

1.4 12 × 3 h 48 min = 45 h 36 min

12 × 3 h 48 min = 36 h 576 min

1.5 4 h 30 min ÷ 15 min = 18

270 min ÷ 15 min

2.1 16 h 10 min – 10 h 00 min = 6 h 10 min

6 h 10 min – 50 min = 5 h 20 min

a) 1 h 30 min

b) 35 min

c) 6 h 5 min

d) 4 h
