Our add minutes calculator will help you add (or subtract) minutes to find the total time! You'll never have to worry about counting minutes or wondering how long it will take to do different tasks!
In the article below, we shall teach you how to use our adding minutes calculator with an example. You can also find answers to some frequently asked questions.
Adding minutes with our add minutes calculator
Using our minute adder calculator is very simple:
Enter the values of time you wish to add in each field. You can enter up to 20 values! More rows will appear magically as you fill out the existing fields.
- Tip: Minutes are the default unit for each field, but you can change this by clicking on the unit and selecting any other available unit of time.
Select the units in which you wish to see the results. By default, this is also set to minutes, but you have a vast selection of units to try!
The add minutes calculator will automatically show you the result at the bottom!
Let's try this with an example. Say you are driving to the cinema but must pick up your friend first. It will take 12 minutes to get to your friend's place and 15 minutes from there to the cinema. It may take 10-20 minutes at the cinema to park your car, meet up with other friends, buy tickets, get some snacks, etc, before you finally walk into the theatre. Let's use our adding minutes calculator to determine how much time this will take.
12 minutesin the first field.
15 minutesin the second field.
A third field will appear as soon as you filled the second one! Enter here
20 minutesfor all the miscellaneous activities at the cinema before going to the movie.
Select the unit the results must be displayed in. Say you're interested in minutes, so leave it in the default setting.
The adding minutes calculator displaces the result,
47 minutes, at the bottom.
Subtracting minutes and negative time
Can time be negative? Of course not! So why do we allow negative time values in our calculator? Because this will enable you to use our add minutes calculator to also subtract minutes if required.
For example, say you have a meeting in another 50 minutes, and your boss wants you to send in your presentation at least 15 minutes before the session begins. So how much time do you have before you must send it in? Our minute adder calculator can help you with this, too:
50 minutesin the first field.
-15 minutesin the second field.
- The calculator shows you the result:
But what if the result is negative? This means you may need to double-check your inputs. If everything looks okay and your result is still negative, you are running on time deficit — you may be planning for more than you have at hand. Perhaps you need to regroup and plan better.

Do 42 minutes and 16 minutes add up to an hour?
No, they add up to 58 minutes, which is 2 minutes less than an hour. To calculate this result, follow these steps:
