Answer:

#4:00#am the following day

Explanation:

#3:00#pm #= 15:00# (on the 24 Hr clock)

#15:00 + 13# Hours #= 4:00# #(15+13-24)# the following day.

#= 4:00#am the folowing day

Answer:

4am the next day

Explanation:

I'm going to use a 24-hour clock for this question to eliminate the whole "AM/PM" thing.

It's "3pm here" - which in a 24 hour clock is 15:00.

Australia is 13 hours ahead - so we add 13 hours:

#15:00+13:00=28:00#

Since the result is greater than 24, we've advanced a day. We subtract 24 hours to get the time:

#28:00-24:00=04:00=4am#
