Why are these two "equations" true?


L + I = 900

7 + 1 = 405


Note: They're not all super accurate, but accurate enough once you realize the method I used to make this little puzzle. No knowledge other than trivial is needed.

It's about

clock,
put the letters or numbers into clock layout:

1

3:00 + 6:00 = 9:00
~8:35 + 7:30 = 16:05 = 4:05 p.m.

I don't know if the same rule is applied to each, but for the second one I see

405 = 45 + 360.
Pictorially 7 is (not exactly) 45°, and then 1 is a circle: 360°.
