# Tips and Tricks

If the event you wish to time is longer than a ten second period, but a multiple of ten seconds, launch another instance of Countdown Timer™ at the moment the previous launch reaches zero.

To time events that do not take a full ten seconds, use the following formula to determine your result:

n_{1 }– x = t

Where n equals the total time (10) and x equals the number displayed by countdown timer and t equals the amount of time the event took. For example, if you are timing the length of time it takes to run 10 paces, simply start Countdown Timer™, run 10 paces (5 paces away from the machine and 5 paces back) and view the number on countdown timer. Let’s say the number was 3. The formula then becomes:

10 – 3 = 7

The total time it took to run 10 paces was approximately 7 seconds.

Using a combination of the two above tips, you can time any event regardless of the amount of time desired!
