- There are 10 minutes between 1:20 and 1:30.
- There are 30 minutes between 1:30 and 2:00.

The correct elapsed time is 1 hour 13 minutes.
- There is 1 hour between 2:35 and 3:35.
- There are 5 minutes between 3:35 and 3:40.
- There are 8 minutes between 3:40 and 3:48.
- 5 + 8 = 13
- 1 hour + 13 minutes = 1 hour 13 minutes

Can you find the elapsed time?Hints
Draw your own table to help you find the correct duration. Add small amounts of time until you find the answer.
For the first question, you could start a table like this. How much time has passed from 3:07 to 4:07?
Once you have found the hours, carry on finding the minutes. This one has been continued but make sure you find the minutes until you reach the end time.Solution
- The table above shows us that there is 1 hour, 48 minutes between 3:07 and 4:55.
- There is 1 hour between 3:07 and 4:07.
- There are 3 minutes between 4:07 and 4:10.
- There are 20 minutes between 4:10 and 4:30.
- There are 20 minutes between 4:30 and 4:50.
- There are 5 minutes between 4:50 and 4:55.
- 3 + 20 + 20 + 5 = 48 minutes
- 1 hour + 48 minutes = 1 hour 48 minutes
2.12:57 to 4:15: 3 hours, 18 minutes
3.6:30 to 8:36 2 hours, 36 minutes

- There is 1 hour between 10:30 and 11:30.
- 10 minutes + 2 minutes = 12 minutes.
- 1 hour + 12 minutes = 1 hour 12 minutes
