We will learn how to addition and subtraction of units of time.

1. Add 25 minutes 45 seconds and 15 minutes 25 seconds.

Solution:

 First add the seconds 45 + 25 = 70 secondsConvert 70 seconds into minutes and seconds70 seconds = 60 seconds + 10 secondsCarry 1 minute to minutes column and write 10 in seconds column

Therefore, 25 minutes 45 seconds + 15 minutes 25 seconds = 41 minutes 10 seconds

3. Add 9 months 25 days 21 hours and 7 months 20 days 13 hours.

 Ans: 17 months 16 days and 10 hours Step I: Add the hours21 + 13 = 34 hours             = 24 hours + 10 hours             = 1 day 10 hoursStep II: Write 10 under hours and carry 1 to days.Step III: Add the days.1 + 25 + 20 = 46 days                    = 30 days + 16 days                    = 1 month 16 daysStep IV: Write 16 under days and carry 1 to months.Step V: Add the months1 + 9 +7 = 17 monthsWrite 17 under months

2. Add 5 weeks 4 days and 4 weeks 5 days

Solution:

 First add days, 4 + 5 = 9 daysConvert 9 days into weeks and days9 days = 7 days + 2 days           = 1 week and 2 daysCarry 1 to week column and write 2 in days column.

Therefore, 5 weeks 4 days + 4 weeks 5 days = 10 weeks 2 days

3. Subtract 18 minutes 29 seconds from 24 minutes 15 seconds

Solution:

 First subtract secondsSince we cannot subtract 29 from 15, we borrow 1 minute. So, 15 + 60 = 75 seconds75 – 29 = 46 secondsWrite 46 in seconds columnNow subtract minutes 23 – 18 = 5 minutes, write 5 in minutes column

Therefore, 24 minutes 15 seconds - 18 minutes 29 seconds = 5 minutes 46 seconds

4. Subtract 7 years 6 months from 8 years 3 months

Solution:

 First subtract the monthsWe borrow 1 year and subtract, 16 – 6 = 9 monthsWrite 9 in months column and now subtract 7 – 7 = 0Write 0 in years column.

Therefore, 8 years 3 months - 7 years 6 months = 9 months

1. Subtract 6 hours 40 minutes from 8 hours 55 minutes

 Step I: Subtract the minutes.55 – 40 = 15 minutesStep II: Subtract hours.8 – 6 = 2 hours Ans: 2 hours 15 minutes

2. Subtract 10 hours 50 minutes from 12 hours 45 minutes.

 Ans: 1 hour 55 minutes Step I: We cannot subtract 50 minutes from 45 minutes.So borrow 1 hour from 12 hours.1 hour = 60 minutes60 + 45 = 105 minutesStep II: Subtract minutes.105 – 50 = 55 minutesWrite 55 under minutes.Step III: 12 – 1 = 11 hours remain in hoursStep IV: Subtract hours.11 – 10 = 1 hourStep V: Write 1 under hours.

 1. Hours Minutes 30 20 + 20 05

 2. Hours Minutes 45 48 + 10 12

 3. Days Hours 33 20 + 45 14 + 50 16

 4. Weeks Days 32 4 + 10 6 + 48 5

 5. Hours Minutes Seconds 17 42 30 + 12 36 20 + 15 50 50

 6. Years Months 56 10 + 43 05 + 17 11

II: Subtract the following.

 1. Hours Minutes Seconds 16 30 20 - 15 20 50

 2. Hours Minutes Seconds 13 23 43 - 10 22 32
