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

The hour hand is pointing to between 6 and 7, so we know it is **after 6 o'clock but before 7 o'clock**.

The minute hand is pointing to 6 which is really 5 x 6 = 30** **minutes.

So the time shown is **half past 6**

which is **0630 **in 24-hour clock time if it is the morning and **1830 **if it is the evening.

24-hour clock time uses 4 digits and no symbols.

NB. The evening time is 12 hours later than the morning time (6 + 12 = 18)

When we move on 1 minute, the hands look like this.

The hour hand has moved a tiny tiny tiny amount.

The minute hand has moved forward one minute.

So the time shown is **0631 ****or ****1831**
