# Time difference between expected time and given time

Given the initial clock time h1:m1 and the present clock time h2:m2, denoting hour and minutes in 24-hours clock format. The present clock time h2:m2 may or may not be correct. Also given a variable K which denotes the number of hours passed. The task is to calculate the delay in seconds i.e. time difference between expected time and given time.

Examples :

Input: h1 = 10, m1 = 12, h2 = 10, m2 = 17, k = 2
Output: 115 minutes
The clock initially displays 10:12. After 2 hours it must show 12:12. But at this point, the clock displays 10:17. Hence, the clock must be lagging by 115 minutes. so the answer is 115.

Input: h1 = 12, m1 = 00, h2 = 12, m2 = 58, k = 1
Output: 2 minutes
The clock initially displays 12:00. After 1 hour it must show 13:00. But at this point, the clock displays 12:58. Hence, the clock must be lagging by 2 minutes. so the answer is 2.

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach:

1. Convert given time in h:m format to number of minutes. It is simply 60*h+m.
2. Calculate both the computed time(adding K hours to the initial time).
3. Find the difference in minutes which will be the answer.

Below is the implementation of the above approach.

Output:

```Lag = 2 minutes
```

Time Complexity: O(1)
