# Find the value of the following: 25% of 1 hour in minutes. Verified
Hint: For solving this type of questions you should know about the calculation of percentage of something. And also know how to calculate any value whose percentage is given to us. And it is calculated by a formula which is used to convert the percentage from any value. The general formula is given as, percentage (%) = $\dfrac{\text{value}}{\text{total value}}\times 100$. And we will find this percent for the minutes available in one hour.
Thus we can calculate the percentage of any number and the number and the total value of that by a single formula. The percentage is the amount of something in terms of 100. And we can say that the percent means per hundred. It means what the value or amount is at every $\text{hundredth}$.
\begin{align} & 1\text{hour}\to 60\text{minutes} \\ & \dfrac{25}{100}\times 60=15\text{minutes} \\ \end{align}
