How does Hours Calculator Work?

It's not magic, our tool uses some predefined algorithms in order to calculate the time. A simple arithmetic calculation is involved to calculate the time duration. Let's understand the complete process with an example.


Find out the hours and minutes between following times:

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


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.

Time Duration = 2 Hours 25 Minutes

1 Hour = 60 Minutes

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