How To Add or Subtract Time?

The best and most straightforward way to calculate times is by time calculator. But if your goal comes up with manual calculations, then the following examples will certainly help you.

Time Addition:

It is preferred to add time by converting all the units in terms of seconds. It will make the calculations quite simple.

Add The Following Times:

4:15:10 & 3:29:03

Step # 01

1 Hour = 60 * 60 sec = 3600 sec

1 Minute = 60 sec

Step # 03

Convert second time in seconds:

3:29:03

= (3*60*60 sec)+(29*60 sec)+(03 sec)

= (10800 sec)+(1740 sec)(03 sec)

= 12543 sec

Step # 05

Calculate Days

1 day = 24 hours

1 day = 24×60×60 sec

1 day = 86400 sec

As we are having a total of 20,653, so we have:

Days = 20,653/86400

Days = 0

Step # 02

Convert first time in seconds:

4:15:10

= (4*60*60 sec)+(15*60 sec)+(10 sec)

= 7200sec+900sec+10sec

= 8110 sec

Step # 04

Add Seconds

= (8110 + 12543) sec

= 20,653 sec

Step # 06

Calculate Hours

Hours = 20,653/3600

Hours = 5.736

Step # 07

Calculate Minutes

Minutes = 20,653/60

Minutes = 344.2

Time Subtraction:

To subtract time, you will again have to follow the same way i.e. keeping the units in sec

Remember that:

  • To subtract times, the first time must be greater than the second time

Subtract The Following Times:

6:40:17 & 1:03:21

Step # 01

Again we have:

1 Minute = 60 sec

1 Hour = 60 * 60 sec = 3600 sec

Step # 03

Convert second time in seconds:

1:03:21

= (1*60*60 sec)+(03*60 sec)+(21 sec)

=(3600 sec)+(180 sec)(21 sec)

= 3801 sec

Step # 05

Calculate Days

1 day = 24 hours

1 day = 24×60×60 sec

1 day = 86400 sec

As we have a total of 20,216, so we have:

Days = 20,216/86400

Days = 0

Step # 02

Convert first time in seconds:

6:40:17

=(6*60*60 sec)+(40*60 sec)+(17 sec)

= 21,600 sec + 2400 sec + 17 sec

= 24,017 sec

Step # 04

Subtract Seconds

= (24,017 - 3801) sec

= 20,216 sec

Step # 06

Calculate Hours

Hours = 20,216/3600

Hours = 5.615

Step # 07

Calculate Minutes

Minutes = 20,216/60

Minutes = 336.0
