Time - Converting analogue to digital time


There are 24 hours in one day, but the day can be measured by splitting it into two halves. The first 12 hours of the day - from midnight to midday - are called AM, and the next twelve hours are called PM.  


There is an easy process to convert the 24-hour clock into the 12-hour clock with no extra tools.

From 1:00 PM to 11:59 PM,  add 12 hours to find the analogue time. Here, 1pm becomes 13:00.

From 12:00 AM (midnight) to 12:59 AM, subtract 12 hours to get the analogue time. 12am becomes 00:00. 


The video below explains how to read and understand a digital clock.
