In my project i have to save the time taken to solve a sum. If the sum did was wrong then the student have to done it again. In this time i have to add my time with the previous time which i saved in our database..For Example in the first attempt time taken was 00:15:25 (hr:min:sec format),second attempt it is 00:10:25. Then in my database i have to save it as 00:25:50 (adding first and second attempt time)

Right now i'm trying to split the time and getting values separately(ie, taking hr,min,sec time separately and then adding it separately.. Is there any other method.. can i do with jquery or javascript..

## Solution 2

The best way is to start with the start time, then find the end time.
```DateTime startTime = DateTime.Now;
...
DateTime endTime = DateTime.Now;```

If you then subtract them, you get a Timespan:
`TimeSpan takenSoFar = endTime - startTime;`

When it comes to the second attempt, you do the same thing:
```DateTime startTime2 = DateTime.Now;
...
DateTime endTime2 = DateTime.Now;```

If you then subtract them, you get a Timespan:
`TimeSpan takenThisAttempt = endTime2 - startTime2;`

You can then add the two Timespans together:
`takenSoFar += takenThisAttempt;`

## Solution 4

```You can use TimeSpan

TimeSpan t = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(seconds);

and

use t.Hours, t.Minutes and t.Seconds to format the string how ever you want.```

## Solution 1

Hi,

Use the following code.

```TimeSpan time1 = new TimeSpan(0, 15, 25);
TimeSpan time2 = new TimeSpan(0, 25, 50);
