It is evening 7:15. What time would it be 10 hours earlier? Jessica 

Hi Jessica,
Now count. From 7:15 to 6:15 is one hour. Fron 6:15 to 5:15 is one hour.... So what time is it after you have counted backwards for 10 hours? Is it in the morning or evening? There is however an easier way to do this. Since my clock works in 12 hour cycles, 12 hours from now it will read exactly the same as it does now. Thus 12 hours before it read 7:15 it also read 7:15. Hence 2 hours after that, which is 10 hours ago it read 9:15. Is that in the morning or afternoon? Cheers,Penny
