  1. Also if you are trying to find the answers to choose it's

    B. She subtracted the end time from the start time.
    C. She did not regroup 1 hour for 60 minutes to subtract the minutes.
    D. She did not account for a.m. and p.m. in the start and end times.

  3. Who knows how she got that
    Maybe that cumbersome method of pm and am got in the way.
    2:40 pm -----> 14:40
    8:05 am -----> 8:05

    14:40 - 8:05 = 6:35

    On you calculator, look for a key similar to D°M'S
    This will allow you to do addition and subtraction
    of units of time, D would be hours, M is minutes and S is seconds
    The original intent was to do operations of units and angles, but
    since units of time of hours, minutes, seconds are structured in the
    same way as angles in degrees, minutes and seconds, it serves
    well for both units.
