Adding whole Minutes

If you want to add whole minutes to a given time, you can use the following formula:

=Start_time+TIME(0, minutes,0)
  • Start_time: the time that you want to add minutes to
  • Minutes: the minutes that you wish to add

This function returns a time formatted string.

Cell C2 shows the number of minutes you want to add, while Cell D2 displays a formula that will calculate how many more cells need changing.

=B2+TIME(0,C2,0)

Or

=B4+C4/1440

To see the result, press Enter key.

Explanation

The TIME function is a great way to convert decimal numbers into an appropriate time format. Here, we change the number of minutes from 50 (which converts it into PM) and then add:00 before adding another set amount for minutes-in, in this case, 0 because there aren’t any other digits available on our keyboard!

Note: To subtract the minutes from a time period, you need to use this formula.

= MOD(Start_time-TIME(0, minutes,0),1)

For Instance, Cell B2 shows time, and cell C2 shows the number of minutes you want to subtract. If you want to subtract a number of minutes, use the below formula:

=MOD(B2-TIME(0,C2,0),1)

To see the result, hit Enter key.

24 hours in a day, and one minutes is 1/1440th of the whole duration.

Note: Subtracting the minutes from time is easy with this formula.

=MOD(Start_time- minutes /1440,1)

The number of minutes you want to subtract is displayed in cell C2, and time is displayed in B2. To find the correct formula, please use this simple equation:

=MOD(B2-C2/1440,1)

To see the result hit Enter key.
