Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Clocks have an hour hand and a minute hand (and sometimes a second hand)

 

 

The hour hand is shown in red.  It is SHORTER.

The minute hand is shown in green.  It is LONGER.

 

The hour hand uses the numbers shown on the clock face.  

It is pointing to between 9 and 10, so we know it is after 9 o'clock but before 10 o'clock.

 

The minute hand does not use the numbers on the clock face.  

We must multiply them by 5 to get the minutes.

It is pointing to 5 which is really 5 x 5 = 25 minutes.

 

So the time shown is    9:25

  • Question 1

What time is shown on the clock face?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
9.15
9:15
EDDIE SAYS
The green minute hand is pointing towards the 3, so this means it is quarter past the hour. The red hour hand is close to the 9, so this must mean that it is quarter past 9, or 9:15.
  • Question 2

What time is shown on the clock face?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
6.05
6:05
EDDIE SAYS
The green minute hand is point to the 1, which means it's five minutes past the hour. The red hour hand is pointing near the 6, which means it is five past six, or 6:05.
  • Question 3

What time is shown on the clock face?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
1.05
1:05
EDDIE SAYS
Here, both hands are pointing towards the one. The green minute hand is signifying five minutes past the hour, and the hour hand is pointing towards the one so it must be five past one, or 1:05.
  • Question 4

What time is shown on the clock face?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
4.45
4:45
  • Question 5

What time is shown on the clock face?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
11.45
11:45
  • Question 6

What was the time ten minutes before the time shown on the clockface.

 

CORRECT ANSWER
2.20
2:20
EDDIE SAYS
Make sure you gave the time ten minutes BEFORE the time on the clockface.
If we follow the same procedure as before, we can work out that the clock is showing half past 2. Ten minutes BEFORE this, is twenty past 2, so the answer is 2:20.
  • Question 7

What time is shown on the clock face?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
10.25
10:25
EDDIE SAYS
Now, we have to look closely at the clock hands, as they are both the same colour. The hand pointing near the ten is shorter, so it must be the hour hand. The longer, minute hand is pointing at the five, showing us 25 minutes past the hour. This means that the time on the clock is 25 past 10, or 10:25.
  • Question 8

What time is shown on the clock face?

 

CORRECT ANSWER
10.35
