    4 HR AND 47 MIN, WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND IS WHY DO I CHANGE 6:30 to 5:90, thank you Ms.Sue

    You're welcome. Your answer is right. :-)

    The easiest way to subtract 1:43 from 6:30 is to change 6:30 to 5:90 because you can't take 43 from 30 without borrowing.

    Thirty minutes after six is the same as 90 minutes after five.
