Question 13.

A manager of a Internet Service provider company wants to analyze the system usage from the log records to find the utilization of the system. He wants to know: For how long did the each user the system?

When the user want to use the system he must login to the system (starttime e.g. 12:30) and after finishing the works he must log out off the system (endtime e.g. 18:10). The time format is the 24 hour system hours and minutes.

You may also assume that the data is valid and a user will login for less then 24 hours. you my assume that the user will login only once in 24 hours. If the endtime (e.g. 2:30) is less then the starttime (e.g. 19:20) it means that the user logged in over the night.
