Time differences so hard to calculate sorry sir no offence meant but have a post here that might help you use the force
Even otherwise highly numerate people have been known to throw up their hands in horror at the thought of adding together times.
A system like time, which is not decimal, can be counter-intuitive and requires concentration.
However, with a bit of application, you too can learn how to calculate with time, and gain confidence in manipulating hours, minutes and seconds. Basic Units of Time
The basic units of time, which allow you to do calculations involving time, are:
Unit NotesSecond The second is the International System of Units (SI) measurement for time. The symbol 's' is used to denote a second. Seconds are also commonly abbreviated to sec.Minute60 SecondsA minute nearly always has sixty seconds. However, very occasionally (approx. once every 18 months) a minute can have 61 seconds. These 'leap seconds' are used to keep our clocks aligned to the earth's rotation around the sun.Hour60 MinutesIt is common to talk about 'half an hour' (30 minutes) and 'quarter of an hour' (15 minutes).Day24 hours Week7 daysIt is also common for people to talk about a work week, usually 5 days (Monday - Friday) and weekends (Saturday and Sunday).Month28,29, 30 or 31 days.Different months have different numbers of days. All months have either 30 or 31 days except for February. February has 28 days in a common year and an extra day in a leap year; the 29thday of February is called the leap day.Year12 MonthsA year always has 12 months. A year has approximately 52 weeks. A common year has 365 days and a leap year (occurring mostly every 4 years) has 366 days.Decade10 Years Century100 Years Millennium1,000 Years Years are commonly split into quarters, especially in business and education settings with each quarter being three months or approximately 90 days. Quarters in a specific business or sector may not necessarily be the same as those indicated below: The number of days in a month varies. All months have the same number of days each year except for February which has 28 days in a common year and 29 in a leap year.

People often use approximations when calculating the number of days in months. For example, it is common to use the assumption that a month contains four weeks, even though only February in a common year actually does so.
This makes it hard to convert from months to weeks and vice versa, unless you know which months are being used, because there is no immediate ‘conversion factor’.
