### Converting Units of Time

The ParaPro Assessment may ask you to convert units of time. Just like converting U.S. customary or metric units, multiply when changing from a larger unit to a smaller unit and divide when changing from a smaller unit to a larger unit.

Example

A teacher creates a lesson plan for the week that will take four hours. How many minutes will the lesson plan take?

Because minutes are a smaller unit than hours, you need to multiply to convert the units. Remember that there are 60 minutes in an hour.

4 hours = ? minutes

4 hours × 60 minutes per hour = 240

Therefore, there are 240 minutes in 4 hours.

### Money

In addition to converting between units of length, capacity, weight, mass, and time, you may also be asked to convert between units of money. Remember that one cent is equal to of a dollar, or \$0.01. The values of U.S. coins are as follows:

1 penny = 1 cent = 1¢ = \$0.01
1 nickel = 5 cents = 5¢ = \$0.05
1 dime = 10 cents = 10¢ = \$0.10
1 quarter = 25 cents = 25¢ = \$0.25
1 dollar = 100 cents = 100¢ = \$1.00
