How Do I Sum Times (Minutes and Seconds) Using the Duration Function In Numbers?

Helo Gary,
Do you have any YouTube video explaining this?
I want to total the time in, say:
A1: 1 minute and 35 seconds
A2: 3 minutes and 55 seconds
How can I sum this using the Duration Function?
I’ll appreciate your attention to this matter.
Thank you very much.
Please, be safe.
Best regards from

    You don’t need any special function to do this. Just add them together as you would any other number.

    So in A1, I type “1m 35s” and it automatically gives me a duration-formatted cell. Then “3m 55s” in A2. A3 is then just =A1+A2.
