John takes the train to Birmingham.

He sets off at 9:25 in the morning and arrives at 11:47.

How long was his journey?



To work out how many minutes have passed on the journey, we can simply calculate 47 - 25 = 22.

We then need to calculate the number of hours that have passed, 11 - 9 = 2.

So, the total journey time is 2 hours and 22 minutes.


Now it's over to you.
