## Answers ( )

Answer:30/60 or 1/2

Step-by-step explanation:we have a total of an hour, which is 60 minutes.

he spent 15 on decorating, so d=15

he spent 20 on testing, so t=20.

the question is asking for the total of both of these times. so d + t is 20 plus 15.

that would be 35.

so, we know that he spent 30 minutes on decoeating and testing. he bad 60 total minutes. so, 30/60. simplify, and we get 1/2. he spend half of his time decorating and testing.
