# The mitotic phase of the human cell cycle takes approximately 1 hour. What percentage of the 24-hour cell cycle is the mitotic phase?

Feb 9, 2018

Divide the amount of time the mitotic phase takes by the  of hours in the cell cycle, multiply by 100% to get the answer.

1/24*100%=4.17%

It should be ~~4.167%

#### Explanation:

Since the phase takes about $1$ $\text{hour}$, and the cell cycle takes $24$ $\text{hours}$, you divide $1$ by $24$.

$\frac{1}{24} = 0.041 \overline{66}$

Turn into a percent:

About 4.167%#
