At basketball practice, Donald’s team practiced defense for 30 minutes and offense for 45 minutes. If the practice ended at 7:00 P.M., what time did it start?

Include A.M. or P.M. in your answer (for example, 11:58 A.M.).


  1. Answer:
    5:45 P.M.
    Step-by-step explanation:
    You would first subtract the amount of time it took for defesne from the end time, so 7:00 – 30 mins = 6:30, then you would subtract the offense from that 6:30- 45 mins, which equals 5:45 then you would add P.M. because it is still in the evening.
    7:00 – 30 mins – 45 mins = 5:45 P.M.
