### How to Calculate Hours Between Two Times?

A simple arithmetic operation is involved to calculate the hours between two times. Let's understand it with an example.

#### Example:

Find out the hours and minutes between following times:

Start time = 10:05 AM
End time = 12:30 PM

#### Solution:

Firstly, subtract the starting time hours from the ending time hours.
12 - 10 = 2

Similarly, subtract the starting time minutes from the ending time minutes.
30 - 5 = 25

Now, you have the hours and minutes result. So, combine them to get the final result.

Duration = 2 Hours 25 Minutes

1 Hour = 60 Minutes

So, Total Minutes = 60 + 60 + 25 = 145
