    It looks like your "Time to resolve" column calculates the percentage of a day (24 hours) that it takes to resolve. If this is consistent, you could use that column as a basis to formulate your Total Time. Here's the formula I would use in your "Total Time" column:

    =ROUNDDOWN([Time to resolve]@row * 24) + ":" + (ROUNDDOWN(([Time to resolve]@row * 24 - ROUNDDOWN([Time to resolve]@row * 24)) * 60))
