Answer:

See the solution process below:

Explanation:

We can solve this using ratios:

#60 min: 1# #hr -> x: m# #hr#

Or

#(60 min)/(1 hr) = x/(m hr)#

#color(red)(m hr) * (60 min)/(1 hr) = color(red)(m hr) * x/(m hr)#

#color(red)(m color(black)(cancel(color(red)(hr)))) * (60 min)/(1 color(red)(cancel(color(black)(hr)))) = color(red)(color(black)(cancel(color(red)(m))) color(black)(cancel(color(red)(hr)))) * x/(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(m))) color(red)(cancel(color(black)(hr))))#

#60m minutes = x#

Therefore there are #60m# minutes in #m# hours.
