Problem

What time was it $2011$ minutes after midnight on January 1, 2011?

$\textbf{(A)}\ \text{January 1 at 9:31PM}$

$\textbf{(B)}\ \text{January 1 at 11:51PM}$

$\textbf{(C)}\ \text{January 2 at 3:11AM}$

$\textbf{(D)}\ \text{January 2 at 9:31AM}$

$\textbf{(E)}\ \text{January 2 at 6:01PM}$

Solution

There are $60$ minutes in an hour. $2011/60=33\text{r}31,$ or $33$ hours and $31$ minutes. There are $24$ hours in a day, so the time is $9$ hours and $31$ minutes after midnight on January 2, 2011. $\Rightarrow\boxed{\textbf{(D)}\text{ January 2 at 9:31AM}}$
