# How long is 15000 seconds?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking for the conversion of 15000 seconds into a more comprehensible time format, such as hours, minutes, and seconds.

$4$ hours, $10$ minutes, $0$ seconds.

The final answer is: $4$ hours, $10$ minutes, $0$ seconds.

#### Steps to Solve

1. Identify Time Units
We know that 1 hour is equal to 3600 seconds and 1 minute is equal to 60 seconds.

2. Convert seconds to hours
First, we will divide the total seconds by the number of seconds in an hour. $$\text{Hours} = \frac{15000 \text{ seconds}}{3600 \text{ seconds/hour}} \approx 4.1667$$
Since we need whole hours, we take the integer part, which is 4 hours.

3. Calculate remaining seconds
Next, we find out how many seconds remain after converting to hours: $$\text{Remaining seconds} = 15000 - (4 \times 3600) = 15000 - 14400 = 600 \text{ seconds}$$

4. Convert remaining seconds to minutes
Now, we convert the remaining seconds into minutes: $$\text{Minutes} = \frac{600 \text{ seconds}}{60 \text{ seconds/minute}} = 10 \text{ minutes}$$

5. Determine remaining seconds
Since there are no remaining seconds after converting to minutes, we find that: $$\text{Remaining seconds} = 600 - (10 \times 60) = 600 - 600 = 0 \text{ seconds}$$

6. Final time format
Combine hours, minutes, and seconds to present the final time format: $$15000 \text{ seconds} = 4 \text{ hours}, 10 \text{ minutes}, 0 \text{ seconds}$$

The final answer is: $4$ hours, $10$ minutes, $0$ seconds.
