# Elapsed Time

Sometimes we want to find out the duration of an activity. We can calculate the duration or time elapsed if we know the starting and finishing time. For example, if the bus starts at 9:00 a.m. and reaches the school at 9:30 a.m. the time taken by the bus to reach school is 09:00 – 09:30 which is equal to 30 minutes. So, the school bus takes 30 minutes to reach the school.

Let us consider some more examples involving calculation of duration of an activity.

1. Find the elapsed time from 8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Solution:

Time difference from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon = 4 hours

Time difference from 12:00 noon to 7:30 p.m. = 7 hours 30 minutes

Total time elapsed = 11 hours 30 minutes.

2. Find the elapsed time from 1350 hours to 2200 hours.

Solution:

2200 hours - 1350 hours

Hours          Minutes

2 2                0 0

- 1 3                 5 0

8                 1 0

Therefore, time elapsed = 8 hours 10 minutes.

3. What time would it be 4 hours 20 minutes after 7:10 a.m.?

Solution:

7:10 a.m. = 0710 hours

Hours          Minutes

7               1 0

+  4                2 0

1 1                3 0

Therefore, time after 4 hours 20 minutes will be 11:30 a.m.
