What this fails to explain, but i found helped me properly understand, is that excel sees hours and minutes as a number. so one day which is actually 24 hours = 1, half a day or 12 hours = 0.5, a quarter of a day or 6 hours = 0.25. Hence why when you multiply a time value by a number you get a stupid result, unless you also multiply it by 24.
