Here is a clock.

The **short red hand **is pointing to **between the 9 and the 10**, so the time is between 9 o'clock and 10 o'clock. So it will be **9** something...

The **long blue hand **is pointing to between the **7 and the 8**, so we count in minutes round the clock like this to see that it is pointing to **37** minutes past:

**The time shown is 9:37****.**

In the **morning, **this will be **9:37 a.m. or 09:37.**

In the **evening**, this will be **9:37 p.m. or 21:37.**

**Remember**

Add 12 to the hours for times after 12 noon in the 24-hour clock.

4 p.m. is 4 **+ 12** = 16:00

9 p.m. is 9 **+ 12** = 21:00

11 p.m. is 11 **+ 12** = 23:00 etc.
