Can someone help me with this question.
A train leaves Haba at 18.42 and arrives in Well at 12.34. How many minutes does the journey take?
Thanks

Draw a number line and put the two times on it.

A train leaves Haba at 18.42 and arrives in Well at 12.34.

18.42 .... how many minutes to 19.00 ..... then how many hours to 12.00 [then convert to minutes] ..... then add minutes to 12.34.

It's much easier to visualise time like this :)

Thank you very much.

It was supposed to be 21 and not 12.

Most people say hi and introduce themselves before just asking for help by the way...

Do you mean 12:34 the next day or 00:34 in the morning?
