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.
