Sample Problem

Look at the clock. What time is it now? Answer using digits and a colon (for example, 12:00).

 

Solution

Remember that the shorter hand means the hour hand, and the longer one is the minute hand. First, let’s look at the hour hand, it points to 2 so the hour time is 2. Then, let’s look at the minute hand, it points to 12. Finally, we get the time as 2:00.
