Date: 8/30/96 at 8:36:43 From: RP Subject: Converting time Hello, My question is: at work I have a time clock that is "measured by 100", meaning 25 = 15 minutes, 50 = 30 minutes, etc. First of all, is this a "military style" clock? And what is the (hopefully easy) formula that I can use to convert the time clock at my work into "real time", for example, I've worked 742 units - how many hours/minutes is that in real time? Thanks.
