A 2 hour 40 mins tennis match ends a 5.25pm. What time did it start. Confused.
Ok, to make this easier for yourself take 2 hours away from 5:25 pm first. That would make it 3:25pm. You still need to account for the 40 minutes. So taking 40 minutes away from 3:25pm (which is the same as 40 mins before 3:25pm) makes it 2:45pm.
2 hrs 40 min match end at 5.25 pmmeans it started at 5 hrs 25 min-2 hrs 40 min=2 hrs 45 min
