# Mr. White can travel for 6 hours while taking 3 breaks of 10 minutes each. Once, he had to travel for 36 hours. How many minutes in breaks did he take?

$\text{180 min}$

#### Explanation:

$3 \times \text{10 min" = "30 min}$

In 6 hours, Mr. White takes a total of $\text{30 min}$ in breaks.

$\text{36 h" = "6 h} \times 6$

In $\text{36 h}$, there are $6$ sets of $\text{6 h}$.

Hence we can multiply the number of minutes in breaks taken in $\text{6 h}$ by $6$ to obtain the number of minutes in breaks taken in $\text{36 h}$.

$\text{30 min" xx 6 = "180 min}$
