## How to Use The Add Hours and Minutes Calculator

The interface is quite easy to understand, you can just enter the time - hours and minutes, compute or add row then the results will be displayed on the left corner. But here's a step by step guide to it.

• 1. Enter the hour on 'HH' input (e.g. 12 or 4).
• 2. Type in the corresponding minutes on 'MM' input on the same row if applicable.
• 3. Click on 'Compute' button to get the added hours and minutes. 60 minutes is equivalent to 1 hour, so it is automatically added to the hours total and subtracted to minutes total.
• 4. You can add row by clicking the 'Add Row' button as well as delete extra row by clicking the corresponding '🗙' button.

## Add Hours and Minutes Logic

Considering you have these hours and minutes (HH:MM) you want to add up:

```      ```
12 : 18
1  : 45
8  : 55
```
```

The idea is that you can add all the minutes first and convert it to HH:MM format. Then, add up all the hours including the hours derived from converted minutes. So from the given example data above, here's how it goes.

• Step 1: Add `18 + 45 + 55`, that would be equal to `118`.
• Step 2: Convert the total minutes into hours. `1 hour = 60 minutes`. The idea is to get the remainder and not the decimal value for this because you want just separate how many group of 60's are there in 118 minutes. So `118 / 60 = 1 remainder 58`. You can check out 🔢 Remainder Calculator for this.
• Step 3: Add all the hours from our list `12 + 1 + 8 = 21`, include the hours derived from converted minutes so that would be `21 + 1 = 22`.
• Step 4: With the original hours and converted minutes, you now have `22 hours and 58 minutes.` We derived the 58 minutes from the remainder when we find group of 60's in 118 total minutes.
