Is 60 seconds the same as 1 minute?

If you put 60 seconds on the microwave its different from putting 1:00 because if you add 1:00 + 1:00 = 2:00 but if you add 60+60= 1:20 so one minute isn't the same as 60 sec because your food will cook less if you press 60 instead of 1:00. I know it's confusing!

I've been taught 60 seconds and 1 minute are the same... but I'm starting to think I've been made a fool of?

    • Oooh noo... what can I do :(?

      Do I have to get a new microwave?

    • Yes. Ideally one where you don't input the numbers yourself. Pressing pre-set buttons is much more simple and mindless.

  • Everything we've ever been told about time is a lie.

  • If you look when it counts down from 1:00 it goes 1:00 :59, :58 and so on. Same as counting down from 60
