2:43 PM to 3 PM  =  17 minutes

3PM to 5 PM  = 2 hours

5 PM to 5:18 PM = 18 minutes

So

2  hours + 17 minutes + 18 minutes =

2 hours 35 min   Jan 30, 2019

See that 2:43PM to 3PM is just 2:43PM to 2:59PM, with one extra minute. We can do this to avoid confusion. This is simple. $$59-43=16$$, and $$16+1=17$$. Therefore, the time from 2:43PM to 3PM is 17 minutes long.

3PM to 5PM is simple - we see there are $$5-3=2$$ hours between the times. This accounts for $$2\times 60=120$$ minutes between 3PM to 5PM, because 60 minutes make up an hour.

Finally, we can see that 5PM to 5:18PM is simply 18 minutes.

Adding all the minutes up, we get $$17+120+18$$ total minutes walking and that equals $$155$$ minutes. This is also equal to 2 hours 35 minutes.

You are very welcome!
