60 divided by the first number equals the second number.

Yes BobbyGo!.

But could you put it in a more "everyday" practical way? What you say points to something more specific that makes the solution a bit more fascinating I guess (at least it was for me :-)

The obvious answer is fractions of an hour [or a minute].

1/3 of an hour is 20 min

1/6 hour = 10 min

1/10 hour = 6 min ...

'scuse me askin, but why has the guy been repped -1 for posting a question? And by whom?

it wasn't me.

and I did find a much more practical interpretation of the solution

If you measure the time it takes to travel 1 mile [in Min], the second number will be your speed. [in mph]

so 1:60 means that you travelled a mile in 1 minute and your speed is 60 mph!

Is the the interpretation you were looking for??

No reason I can see ... I put him back even.
