You can find it in two ways

1) Convert 7hrs to minutes

7hrs = 7*60 = 420 minutes

subtract 43

420-43=377 minutes

divide by 60

377/6 = 6 and remainder 17

means 6 hrs 17min

2) Convert only last hour to minutes

7hrs = 6hrs 60min

now keep hours and subtract minutes 60-43=17min

7hrs - 43min = 6hrs 17min

7 hours minus 43 minutes is 6 hours and 17 minutes. This is elementary school level math.

I like to look at this like base60 math, separated by the colons of a time.

If you want to subtract:

7:00

-0:43

-------

You can't take 43 from 0, so you have to borrow one hour and turn it into 60 min:

6:60-0:43-------Now you can take 43 from 60 and then drop the 6:

6:60-0:43-------

6:17
