From 6:45 AM to 8:00 AM, we have 1 hour and 15 minutes.

8:60 AM
- 6:45 AM
----------------
1 15

⇒ 1 hour = 60 minutes

1 hour and 15 minutes
60 minutes + 15 minutes
75 minutes

Miriam painted her pots for 75 minutes.

Given:
The range of time spent for painting the pots = 6:45 AM - 8:00 AM

Find:  The time taken for Miriam to painter her pots in minutes.
Solution:

Objective 1: Find the number of hours taken.
Step 1: Subtract the hours.
Step 2: Subtract the minutes.
If the difference is negative:
∞ Add 60 to the difference.
∞ Subtract 1 from the difference of Step 1.

Actual Operation:

Time:    6:45 AM - 8: 00 AM
( Hour numbers: 8 and 6 ) ( Minute numbers: 0 and 45 )

Step 1:      8 - 6 = 2
Step 2:      0 - 45 = -45    (The difference is negative so we.....)
∞ -45 + 60 = 15 minutes
∞  2 - 1 = 1 hour

We have 1 hour and 15 minutes but, we have to change the all to minutes.

1 hour and 15 minutes = 1 hour + 15 minutes
( We know that there are 60 minutes in 1 hour so we just substitute it.)

1 hour + 15 minutes = 60 minutes + 15 minutes

= 75 minutes
