What whole number of minutes (less than 60) could be expressed as terminating decimal parts of an hour?

Try some divisions. See what you get! :wink:

One minute is 1/60. What is the decimal form?

Two minutes is 2/60 = 1/30. What is the decimal form?

Three minutes is 3/60 = 1/20. What is the decimal form?

And so forth.

Have fun! :D
