Time is generally shown in hours, minutes, and seconds. Time is also used in verbal conversations, advertisements, appointments, flight schedules, and many daily uses.
It is easier and more common to use hours and minutes, for example, my appointment is at 11: 20 or I will arrive in 45 minutes.
While it may be very convenient and popular to use time in daily conversations, it can get confusing if we use the time format to add hours, specifically for payroll.
For example, If you want to add 1:20 + 30 minutes = 1:50, that’s simple.
But, the problem with adding time will get harder once we pass the number 59.
For example if you would need to add the time 1:59 + 1:45.
The quickest and easiest way to add time is to convert the minutes to decimal format.
To convert hours to decimal using a calculator, simply divide the number of minutes by 60.
59/60 = .98
45/60 = .75
1.98 + 1.75 = 3.73
