Lol, "tres" is "3" in spansk

i think that "a minute 'has' sixty seconds" and "a minute 'contains' sixty seconds is the same

I understood that indeholder means "contains", but could not bring myself to write "a minute contains sixty seconds". I would say "there are sixty seconds in a minute" or "a minute has sixty seconds". You should not make people use bad English to do a task acceptably.

I think that 60 is as correct as "sixty" ?

Sure, but the point is to learn danish words, including the words for numbers

Can 'indenholder' be translated as 'consists of'?
