# A radio station spends 1/40 of each 24 hours on public service announcements. How much time is spent on public service announcements each day?

Start by calling the time spend on announcements 'A'. We can then set up an equation to represent the problem: $A=24hours \times \frac{1}{40}$ and then solve by multiplication to get: A=0.6hours We could also convert this into minutes: $A=0.6hours \times \frac{60mins}{1hour} = 36mins$
