Question
please, tell me how many minutes    '.5'   would be in the equation
'9.5 hours'
         thank you.

Answer
Well, I'm not sure if you want to know how many minutes .5 hrs is or the whole 9.5, so I'll answer both.

Since an hour is 60 minutes, .5 hrs is 30 minutes.  If you want the total amount, multiply 9.5 times 60
9.5x60=570.

So half an hour is 30 minutes and 9 and 1/2 hours is 570 minutes.
