There are 60 minutes in an hour, and one tenth of 60 is equal to 6. This means that there are 30 / 6 tenths of an hour in 30 minutes, or five tenths.

Another way to think of this is to say that thirty minutes is half an hour. That means that it will be half of ten tenths of an hour. Half of ten is five, so again, you get five tenths.

Yet another way to think of it is to look at it as 1/2 hours. To convert it to tenths, you need to multiply both the numerator and the denominator by five, giving you 5/10 - again, five tenths.
