Total class time from 2:45 to 4:30 =>105

lecture lasted from 2:45 to 4:15 => 90 minutes

question-and-answer session lecture lasted from 4:15 to 4:30 => 15 minutes

question-and-answer session was what fraction of the total class time = \(\frac{15}{105}\) = \(\frac{1}{7}\)

Hence option A

Solution



Given:
    • A certain class, consisting of a lecture and a question-and-answer session, lasted from 2:45 to 4:30 one afternoon
    • The lecture lasted from 2:45 to 4:15

To find:
    • Fraction of question and answer session of the total class time
      o i.e. Question and Answer session time/Total class time.

Approach and Working:
    • We are given that the class lasted from 2:45 to 4:30 PM
      o i.e. a total of 1 Hour and 45 Minutes.
      o Converting the units into minutes we get:
         Total Cass Time: 105 Minutes (60 minutes + 45 minutes)

    • Lecture lasted from 2:45 to 4:15 PM
      o i.e. for 1 Hour and 30 Minutes
      o Converting into minutes we get
         Lecture time = 90 Minutes.

    • Therefore, Question-and-answer-session time = Class time – Lecture Time
      o i.e. 105 – 90 Minutes = 15 minutes

Hence Fraction of Question and answer time/Class time = \(\frac{15}{105} = \frac{1}{7}\)

Hence, the correct answer is option A.

Answer: A

A certain class, consisting of a lecture and a question-and-answer session, lasted from 2:45 to 4:30 one afternoon. If the lecture lasted from 2:45 to 4:15, then the question-and-answer session was what fraction of the total class time?

A) 1/7
B) 1/6
C) 1/5
D) 1/4
E) 1/3


The total time was 105 minutes, and the lecture was 90 minutes. Thus, the question-and-answer session was 15 minutes, which is 15/105 = 1/7 of the total class time.

Answer: A
