This time calculator for minutes, seconds and tenths of seconds will add and subtract time in the form mm:ss.s or minutes:seconds.tenths and keep a running total like an adding machine. Totals will accumulate in hours when necessary. Enter values according to allowed time entry formats below. You should be able to use this keypad-only without a mouse. To cause subtraction you can enter a negative sign before the value such as -5:22.1.

You can use a dash (-), period (.), colon (:) or blank space ( ) as the minute/second separator. For example, 5-06.2, 5.06.2, 5:06.2, and 5 06.2 are all interpreted as 5 minutes 6 seconds and 2 tenths or 5:06.2.

**Seconds are the default:** Entries of an integer-only or integer plus a decimal fraction will be interpreted as seconds and tenths of seconds.

A leading dash or negative sign will cause it to be a negative value.

Entry limits allowed:

- minutes 0 to 59
- seconds 0 to 59
- tenths of seconds 0 to 9
