Minutes from 9::45 A.M. to 10::00 A.M. are 60 - 45 = 15. Minutes from 10::00 A.M. to 12::00 noon are 60 X 2 = 120 mins. Minutes from 12::00 noon to 3::36 P.M. are 60 x 3 = 180 + 36 = 216 mins. So total minutes are 15 + 120 + 216 = 351 minutes, which are equal to 60 X 5 + 51 Thus, hours are = 5, and minutes = 51
