## What is Subtrating Times?

Time is measured in hours, minutes and seconds. Sometimes we may need to find the duration between two given times. The difference can be obtained by subtracting the seconds, minutes and hours between two given times. This can be more clearly understood by going through the example below.

**Solved Example :**

Subtract the following times.

Time 1 = 4 hours and 20 minutes and 10 seconds

Time 2 = 8 hours 30 minutes and 5 seconds

**Solution : **

To subtract the times, please follow the steps mentioned below.

Subtract the seconds from time 2 with seconds from time 1 (which is 5 - 10 = -5 seconds)

If the value is lesser than 0, then borrow one minute from the minutes value and add it to the seconds (which is 60 + (-5) = 55 seconds).

Since one minute was borrowed to be added with the seconds, time 2 now becomes, 4 hours 29 minutes and 5 seconds.

On subtracting the minutes from time 2 with minutes from time 1, we get (29 - 20 = 9 minutes).

On subtracting the hours from time 2 with hours from time 1, we get (8 - 4 = 4 hours).

Therefore, the answer is 4 hours, 9 minutes and 55 seconds.

Now you can use the calculator to subtract the following times.

- 5 hours 20 minutes 10 seconds and 9 hours 25 minutes and 5 seconds
- 10 hours 30 minutes 20 seconds and 12 hours 50 minutes and 30 seconds
