Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

This table shows the times around the world compared to London's time, which is known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

When the table shows GMT-3 for Brazil, it means the time in Brazil is the current time in London minus 3 hours.

When the table shows GMT+2 for South Africa, it means the time in South Africa is the current time in London plus 2 hours.

For Example:

When it is 14:00 in London, it is:

03:00 in Samoa (14:00 - 11 hours)

11:00 in Brazil (14:00 - 3 hours)
