## Subtract Minutes and Seconds

### Subtract Minutes and Seconds: Learn

How to subtract minutes and seconds:

• If the number of seconds being subtracted is larger than the original seconds, you must borrow some seconds from the minutes:
• Subtract 1 from the original number of minutes.
• Increase the number of original seconds by 60.
• Subtract the seconds.
• Subtract the minutes.

Example: What is 4 minutes 1 second minus 2 minutes 6 seconds?

• Since 6 seconds is more than 1 second, we must borrow some seconds:
• Subtract 1 from the original minutes: 4 minutes - 1 minute = 3 minutes
• Add 60 to the original seconds: 1 second + 60 seconds = 61 seconds
• Subtract the seconds: 61 seconds - 6 seconds = 55 seconds
• Subtact the minutes: 3 minutes - 2 minutes = 1 minute
• Final answer: 1 minute 55 seconds
