Answer:

#156# minutes

Explanation:

To convert from hours to minutes, just multiply by #60#

In #1# hour, there are #1xx60 =60# minutes
In #2# hours there are #2 xx60 = 120# minutes
In #3# hours there are #3xx60 = 180# minutes and so on...

In #2 3/5# hours there are:

#2 3/5 xx 60#

#= 13/cancel5 xx cancel60^12#

#= 156# minutes

You can also work with the whole hours and the fraction of an hour separately,

In #2# hours there are #2 xx60 = 120 # minutes

#3/5# of an hour is #3/cancel5 xx cancel60^12 = 3xx12 = 36# minutes

#120+36 = 156#minutes
