### Adding Time

#### Rule: Consider Time as a number, Add together & increment by 40

**Example**: Let’s add 1 hour 45 minutes & 4 hours 25 minutes.

Now, make both time values as numbers & add together:

145 + 425 = 570

Now, increment 40:

570 + 40 = 610

So, the final answer is -6 hours and 10 minutes.

No matter what the hours & minutes are, just add 40 as a time constant to the sub total.

**Similar Example:**2:15 + 6:55

= 215+655 = 870

870+40 = 910

Final Answer: 9 hours & 10 minutes
