I want the result to be this format:

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))

How exactly are you generating a decimal? Does that decimal represent a portion of a day, a portion of an hour, or some other scale?
