He's just doing it to irritate me.

At least my brother has a point.

OP just doesn't understand how many seconds are in a minute.
If you actually look at the tag on most clothing items it will be listed as a single item, pant, chino, Jean etc

4. Try inputting 14:50 on your microwave and 14:30 and see where the countdown starts. Pro tip: you want to see 29, 28, 27.... If you see 49, 48, 47... you picked the wrong one and try again.

5. the 99/100 is for Europe because they're metric.

14.5 = 1450
1450/60 = 24.16666666666667
24/60 = 0.4 = 1quarter

6. its 14.5 x 60 = 870 seconds
