#### Explanation:

Start time 3:15p.m (15 minutes after 3pm)

End time 5:08 p.m (8 minutes after 5pm)

Subtract the start time from the end time to find the time elapsed.

Both times are "pm" (afternoon) so we don't need to account for hours changing back to 1 after 12

Subtract minutes first...

It's not useful to have negative time, so **convert 1 of the end time hours to minutes** and try again.

1 hour = 60 minutes, so add 60 to 08 and subtract 1 from 5

**End time 5:08 becomes 4:68pm**

(68 minutes after 4pm is 8 minutes after 5pm).

Subtract minutes...

**minutes elapsed = 53**

Then hours...

**hours elapsed = 1**

Total time elapsed = 1 hour 53 minutes
