    Cya, although I'm sure you'll be back to try again.

    Listen listen,
    these people really want to help you. Help you to become a great programmer. They do so by making you solve your own problem - by giving you hints an direction, just like a real teacher would.
    Now, I hope you know how to write pseudo code or flow charts?
    I suggest you try. Try to write down the logic in your mind.
    Try to figure out how you would do if someone gave you 3:65:05.
    Let your brain do the work.
    Once you've written a flowchart and pseudo code, you can translate it into actual C++ code. This is the basic step you're taught in programming.

    Code:
    int checkTimeSeconds ( int sec )
    {
       if ( sec > 60 )
       {
          m_Seconds = 10; // default value
       }
    
       else
       {
          m_Seconds = sec;
       }
    
       return m_Seconds;
    }
    Somthing like that.

    Pseudo code is basically non-language code, such as:

    ASK USER FOR INPUT
    CHECK IF INPUT IS VALID
    IF INPUT IS VALID
    PRINT OUTPUT
    ELSE
    PRINT INVALID OUTPUT

    Usually, it's what you translate flowcharts into. One step closer to code.

    Not what he wants to hear. He just wants someone to do his work for him. Has he shown any effort whatsoever?

    I actually thought he had already done this in the OP. However, it now seems the exact scenario quoted was likely spoon-fed as a requirement to him prior to arriving here.

    Well, it worked this time, didn't it?
    Sometimes people on the board are a little too harsh. I know we've all been...

    Here is what I would do:
    Ex:
    given time: 3:65:00 (hours = 3, minutes = 65)
    should be: 4:05:00 (hours = 4, minutes = 5)

    if minutes > 60
    hours = hours + minutes / 60
    minutes = minutes % 60

    65 % 60 = 5 (the minutes should be this)
    65 / 60 = 1 (add this to the hours) (*Note:must be declared as an int).

    Although there are other ways to do this (and declaring it as an int is probably considered bad practice), this would work.

    People are supposed to think for themselves, you know? Not be handed a solution.
    The first thing you learn as a programmer is to be able to translate the logic into program code through pseudo code and flow charts.
