Find difference between current time: Given two times
h2:m2 denoting hours and minutes in 24 hours clock format. The current clock time is given by
h1:m1. The task is to calculate the difference between two timesin minutes and print the difference between two times in
Input : h1=7, m1=20, h2=9, m2=45 Output : 2 : 25 The current time is 7 : 20 and given time is 9 : 45. The difference between them is 145 minutes. The result is 2 : 25 after converting to h : m format. Input : h1=15, m1=23, h2=18, m2=54 Output : 3 : 31 The current time is 15 : 23 and given time is 18 : 54. The difference between them is 211 minutes. The result is 3 : 31 after converting to h : m format. Input : h1=16, m1=20, h2=16, m2=20 Output : Both times are same The current time is 16 : 20 and given time is also 16 : 20. The difference between them is 0 minutes. As the difference is 0, we are printing “Both are same times”.
- convert both the times into minutes
- find the difference in minutes
- if difference is 0, print “Both are same times”
- else convert difference into h : m format and print
Below is the implementation.

2 : 25 3 : 31 Both are same times
