What is 1/6 of a day? Here we will show you how to calculate exactly how many hours, minutes, and seconds there are in 1/6 of a day. We will also illustrate what 1/6 of a day looks like on a pie chart.

Step 1) Calculate hours
We start by calculating the total number of whole hours in 1/6 of a day. There are 24 hours in a day. Therefore, we multiply 1/6 by 24. The whole number of the product we get is the number of hours.

1/6 × 24 = 24/6
24/6 = 4
= 4 hours

Step 2) Calculate minutes
Next we calculate the minutes. There are 60 minutes per hour. Therefore, we multiply the leftover fraction part from Step 1 by 60. The whole number of the product we get is the number of minutes.

0 × 60 = 0
0 = 0
= 0 minutes

Step 3) Calculate seconds
Finally, we calculate the seconds. There are 60 seconds per minute. Therefore, we multiply the leftover fraction part from Step 2 by 60. The product we get is the number of seconds.

0 × 60 = 0
0 = 0
= 0 seconds

Now we have the hours, minutes and seconds of 1/6 of day. When we put it all together we get our answer as follows:

1/6 of a day = 4 hours

Below is a pie chart showing 1/6 of day. To create the image, we first colored the whole pie in blue, and then we covered 1/6 of it in red. Note that each pie slice above is one hour, and the whole pie is one day. Therefore, there are twenty-four slices.
