Example 1:

Navya went to college at                                 7 hr 00 min
Time taken to reach the college for her is       1 hr 30 min   +
Now, the time she reached college is              8 hr 30 min

Example 2: 
Chaitanya is feeding a dog. He starts at 10:45 a.m. and continues feeding for 15 minutes. When did he complete his feeding?


Chaitanya started feeding a dog at 10:45 a.m.
He continued feeding for 15 minutes.
Now, have to find the time when he completed feeding.
We add both the timings and we will get the answer.
i.e., 10 hr 45 min + 15 min = 10 hr + 60 min = 10 hr + 1 hr = 11 hrs.
Hence, at 11:00 a.m. Chaitanya completed the feeding for his dog.

Example 3: 
Sam is getting her exam. She starts at 9:05 a.m. and continues her exam for 58 minutes. When did she finish her exam?


Sam starts her exam at 9:05 a.m.
It continues for 58 minutes.
Now, add both the exam times to get the finish time of the exam.
9 hr 05 min + 58 min = 9 hr 63 min = 9 hr + 60 min + 3 min = 9 hr + 1 hr + 3 min = 10 hr 3 min.
So, Sam finishes her exam at 10:03 a.m.

Example 4: 
The train was scheduled to arrive at 6:40 p.m. However, it was delayed for 35 minutes. What is the time when the train arrives?


The train schedules at 6:40 p.m. i.e., 6 hr 40 min.
The train delays for 35 minutes.
Arrived time of the train = 6 hr 40 min + 35 min = 6 hr 75 min = 6 hr + 60 min + 15 min = 6 hr + 1 hr + 15 min = 7 hr 15 min.
The train arrives at 7:15 p.m.

Example 5: 
Chetan’s birthday party started at 5:30 p.m. The last guest left at 7:05 p.m. How long did Chetan’s party last?


Chetan’s birthday party starts at 5:30 p.m. i.e., 5 hr 30 min.
The last guest left the party at the time of 7:05 p.m i.e., 7 hr 5 min.
To know the time how long did Chetan’s party be. We subtract the left guest time with the time when the party started.
i.e., 7 hr 05 min – 5 hr 30 min = 2 hr 25 min.
Thus, Chetan’s party lasts for 2 hrs 25 min.

Example 6: 
Karan is practicing his violin. He finishes at 2:40 p.m. after 30 minutes. When did he start his violin?


Karan completes his practice at 2:40 p.m. i.e., 2 hrs 40 min.
Next, we have to know when he starts his violin practice time.
From the given question, we have a clue that after 30 minutes. So, we subtract this 30 min time from the completed practice time i.e., 2 hr 40 min.
Now, 2 hr 40 min – 30 min = 2 hr 10 min.
Hence, Karan starts his violin practice session at 2:10 p.m.
