# Hours Calculator

## Calculator Use

Use this calculator to add up a time sheet or for time card labor hours.

**Enter only integers** such as **1215 for 12:15** or **137 for 1:37**. For a full time card use a Time Card Calculator.

Enter start time and end time without '.' or ':'.

If you enter a single integer from 1 through 12 it will assume 1:00 through 12:00.

Assumes "12 pm" for noon and "12 am" for midnight.

## Converting between digital time and decimal hours

Suppose you calculated a total digital time of 7:15, 7 hours and 15 minutes. The equivalent time in decimal hours is 7.25 hours. You will need decimal hours to calculate pay.

**Converting from minutes to decimal hours**

7:15 is 7.0 hours plus 15 minutes. You'll need to convert the minutes part to hours.

15 minutes times 1 hour per 60 minutes will make the conversion to hours and minutes will cancel out.

15 min × (1 hr / 60 min) = (15/60) hr = 0.25 hr

Adding the 0.25 to the 7.0 our total is 7.0 + 0.25 = 7.25 hours

**In Reverse, converting from decimal hours to minutes**

0.25 hours times 60 minutes per 1 hour = 0.25 hr × (60 min/ 1hr) = (0.25 × 60) min = 15 minutes.
