    Say 11:45 is in A1 and 12:45 in B1. The formula =B1-A1 will return the difference in time format 1:00. If you want the result as a number of hours with decimals, for example 1.75 for 1:45, use =(B1-A1)*24 and clear the formatting of the result.
    (Explanation: dates and times are stored with 1 day as unit, so for example 6:00 is 0.25 days. To convert to a number of hours, multiply with the number of hours in a day, i.e. 24)
