How Many Hours Did I Work?
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     You are turning in your first time sheet. You have all your personal information filled out correctly. You filled in the time everyday whenever you started and stopped work. Now you have to count up all the hours you worked. Don't worry. Follow these simple steps and you will get it done correctly.
 
2     Say you worked from 2 PM to 7 PM on Monday. These hours are all PM hours. So you can figure out how many hours you worked just by subtracting. Seven minus two is five. You worked five hours on Monday. If you work all AM hours, you can figure it out the same way. Wow -- that was easy!
 
3     Let's try one that's just as easy. Say you worked form 12 noon to 6 PM on Tuesday. If you go from noon or midnight, the number of hours you worked is the same as the time you stopped. So, you worked six hours on Tuesday. Pretty clever! Midnight to 7 AM is 7 hours. And so on.
