# Sydney, Australia is 13 hours ahead of my current location. If it's 3:00 pm here, what time is it in Sydney, Australia?

Dec 5, 2016

$4 : 00$am the following day

#### Explanation:

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

$15 : 00 + 13$ Hours $= 4 : 00$ $\left(15 + 13 - 24\right)$ the following day.

$= 4 : 00$am the folowing day

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.

$15 : 00 + 13 : 00 = 28 : 00$
$28 : 00 - 24 : 00 = 04 : 00 = 4 a m$
