Definition of Hour

An hour is a unit of time that is equal to:

  • \(60\) minutes
  • \(\dfrac{1}{24}\) days.

For example, there is one hour between \(9:00\text{ am}\) and \(10:00 \text{ am}\), and there are approximately \(6\) hours in a school day.


The aim of this dictionary is to provide definitions to common mathematical terms. Students learn a new math skill every week at school, sometimes just before they start a new skill, if they want to look at what a specific term means, this is where this dictionary will become handy and a go-to guide for a student.
