## How to Use Adding Time Calculator?

Follow the steps given below to add two given times using the time calculator add:

**Step 1:****Step 2:**Enter the two sets of time in the respective input boxes.**Step 3:**Click on**“Calculate”**to add the values entered.**Step 4:**Click on**"Reset"**to clear the fields and enter new values.

## How Does Adding Time Calculator Work?

When we add time, we are essentially adding the distinct units of time and integrating them. Hours, minutes, and seconds are the units of time. There are two formats of representing time. These are the 24-hour clocks and the 12-hour clocks. In a 12 hour clock, the day gets divided into two periods as a.m (anti-meridian) and p.m (post-meridian). Thus, 12 a.m is considered to be the start of the day. In a 24 hour clock, the day starts at 00:00. The addition of time in both clocks follows the same method. Given below are the steps to add time:

**Step 1:**Add the minutes of the two given times.**Step 2:**Add the hours of the two given times.**Step 3:**Suppose the sum of the minutes goes beyond 60. Then 60 needs to be removed from the answer and only the remaining minutes must be considered. These 60 minutes that have been removed are converted to hours and added to hours.

## Solved Examples on Adding Time Calculator

**Example 1:**

Add: 3 hours 37 minutes, and 5 hours 12 minutes. Verify it using the online time calculator add.

**Solution:**

Time - 1 = 3 hours 37 minutes

Time - 2 = 5 hours 42 minutes

Sum = 3 hours 37 minutes + 5 hours 42 minutes

= (3 + 5) hrs + (37 + 42) mins

= 8 hrs + 79 mins

= 8 hrs + 60 mins + 19 mins

= 8 hrs + 1 hr + 19 mins

= 9 hours 19 minutes

Therefore, the total time is 9 hours 19 minutes.

**Example 2:**

Add: 2 hours 12 minutes, and 6 hours 6 minutes. Verify it using the online time calculator add.

**Solution:**

Time - 1 = 2 hours 12 minutes

Time - 2 = 6 hours 6 minutes

Sum = 2 hours 12 minutes + 6 hours 6 minutes

= (2 + 6) hrs + (12 + 6) mins

= 8 hours 18 minutes

Therefore, the total time is 8 hours 18 minutes.

Now, try the time calculator add to add the following sets of time.

- 4 hours 32 minutes, 3 hours 51 minutes
- 7 hours 29 minutes, 2 hours
