# Time Word Problems

**Consider this situation:**

After getting up in the morning, Annie got ready and had her breakfast in 38 minutes. Then she reached her office in 43 minutes at 8:53 A.M.

Let's find the time when she woke up.

It took Annie 38 minutes to get ready and have breakfast. Also, she took 43 minutes to reach office.

Let’s find the total time taken in getting ready for office and reaching office.

38 minutes + 43 minutes = 81 minutes

Now, 81 minutes = 60 minutes + 21 minutes = 1 hour and 21 minutes

To find the time at which Annie woke up, find 1 hour and 21 minutes before 8:53 A.M.

1 hour and 21 minutes before 8:53 P.M. is 7:32 A.M.

So, Annie woke up at 7:32 A.M.
