    it doesn't seem to come out exactly which is unusual.

    A = 1 1/14 hrs
    B = 1 2/14 hrs

    A + B = 2 3/14 hrs = 2 6/28
    T = 1 3/4 hrs = 1 21/28

    A + B + T = 1 27/28 hrs = 1 hrs 58 minutes (rounded)

    I think

    Although you are from the calculator generations fractions can be faster if you need to do it in your head sometimes

    Would someone be kind enough to explain to me how the miles per minute method works when working out time? I have been using the fraction method but feel this might be a quicker way to working time questions out.
