Best Answer

A whole day is 24 hours.

So a fraction of a day is a fraction of 24 hours - to convert the fraction to hours, multiply it by 24:

For example ½ a day is ½ × 24 hours = 12 hours.

1/5 day is 1/5 × 24 hours = 4 4/5 hours or 4.8 hours. In this case the fraction of an hour can be converted into minutes as there are 60 minutes in an hour: multiply by 60. So the 4/5 hour becomes 4/5 × 60 minutes = 48 minutes. Thus 1/5 day = 4 hours 48 minutes.

To convert hours to a fraction of a day, as there are 24 hours in a day, put the number of ours as the numerator over 24 as the denominator, and then simplify.

For example 3 hours is 3/24 = 1/8 day;

For example 5 hours is 5/24 day (this is a simple as it gets as 5 and 24 have no common factor other than 1).
