You must be very careful here when you are renaming. You are taking 1 hour and renaming it as 60 minutes. You must do this because the minutes on the top line must be greater than the minutes on the bottom line.

You can’t simply cross out the hr & carry over a 1 to the minutes column because there are not 100 minutes in an hour.
