# Add Time Calculator

Enter two times below in hours, minutes, & seconds and the time addition calculator will add them together.

## How to Add Times Together

Adding two times or durations together might seem challenging, but it’s actually pretty easy if you follow a few simple steps.

**Step One:** start by adding the hours, minutes, and seconds of each time together separately.

If the minutes and seconds are both less than 60, then that’s it, you’re done!

**Step Two:** if the seconds are larger than 60, simply add 1 to the minutes and subtract 60 from the seconds.

**Step Three:** if the minutes are larger than 60, then add 1 to the hours and subtract 60 from the minutes.

At this point you should have a sum of the two times in hours, minutes, and seconds, great job!

If you want to find the total hours, minutes, or seconds check out our time to decimal calculator.

**For example,** add the times 1:30:45 and 2:45:20 together.

Add hours, minutes, and seconds separately:

hours = 1 + 2 = 3 hours

minutes = 30 + 45 = 75 minutes

seconds = 45 + 20 = 65 seconds

Seconds are greater than 60, so add 1 minute and subtract 60 seconds:

minutes = 75 + 1 = 76 minutes

seconds = 65 – 60 = 5 seconds

Minutes are greater than 60, so add 1 hour and subtract 60 minutes:

hours = 3 + 1 = 4 hours

minutes = 76 – 60 = 16 minutes

Thus, the sum of the times is **4:16:05**.
