I got a chuckle out of this question that was put out on one of the coding and billing forms and thought I'd share. For others sake I have removed the names of the email responders. FYI. I want to work for the person who gave the visual on answer 2.

Answer 1

Quoting Tammy <@hotmail.com>:

that would be 10 hours and 4 min or round it off to 5 min

Answer 2

Here's a visual way to figure this out:

8:17am - 11:58am

8:00-12:00 would be 4 hours, subtract 17 and 2 minutes (total of 19 minutes to subtract), so that would be 3 hours and 41 minutes.

12:37pm - 5:12pm

12:00-5:00 would be 5 hours, add 37 minutes and 12 minutes (total of 49 minutes to add), so that would be 5 hours and 49 minutes.

Take those two totals:

3 hours 41 minutes

+5 hours 49 minutes

add them together starting with the minutes (i.e. 41 + 49 equal 90 minutes, or 1 hour 30 minutes), then the hours 3 hours plus 5 hours equal 8 hours, plus the additional 1 hour 30 minutes, equals.... 9 hours 30 minutes

Answer 3.

Well 8:17 would really be 8:15 and 11:58 would really be 12 so 3.75

and 12:37 would really be 12:30 and 5:12 would really be 5:15 so 5.15

grand total should be 8.9 hours

Answer 4

I am getting 8.75 or 8 hrs and 45 min

Answer 5.

6.75 hours
