Answer:The answer is 1 13/24 hours or 1 hour, 32.5 minutes

Step-by-step explanation:Find a common multiple of the denominators 3 and 8, which would be 24. Convert the fractions:

7/8 x 3/3 = 21/24.

2/3 x 8/8 = 16/24

Add the two numerators = 37/24 or 1 13/24.

1/24 of an hour is 2.5 minutes, so 13/24 is 32.5 minutes.

The answer is 1 13/24 hours or 1 hour, 32.5 minutes
