Answer:

#1800# seconds.

Explanation:

There are #30# minutes in half of an hour, and #60# seconds in a minute.

There are #60# seconds for every minute, and we have #30# minutes, so we multiply #30# and #60#.

#30 * 60 = 1800# seconds.

Answer:

#1/2 xx60xx60 = 1,800# seconds.

Explanation:

It is possible that the fraction makes this question look a bit difficult. However, it follows the same method as any other conversion from hours to seconds.

There are #60# minutes in #1# hour and #60# seconds in #1# minute.

So convert a number of hours to seconds, multiply by #60 xx60#

#1 " hours" = 1 xx60xx60 = 3,600# seconds
#3 " hours" = 3 xx60xx60 = 10,800# seconds

If you have a fraction of n hour, the same method applies.

#1/2 xx60xx60 = 1,800# seconds.
