# Telling time review

Review telling time on an analog clock, and try some practice problems.

## Analog clocks

Time is told in $\maroonD{\text{hours}}$ and $\blueD{\text{minutes}}$. For example, if the time is $\maroonD9\colon\blueD{39}$, the $\maroonD{\text{hour}}$ is $\maroonD9$ and the $\blueD{\text{minutes}}$ are $\blueD{39}$. Another way to think of this is that the time is $\blueD{39}$ $\blueD{\text{minutes}}$ after $\maroonD9$ o'clock.
There are two hands on an analog clock. The short hand is the $\maroonD{\text{hour hand}}$. The long hand is the $\blueD{\text{minute hand}}$.

The hour is the number that the hour hand is either pointing to or has most recently passed.
For example, on all the following clocks, the hour is $3$ o'clock.

The minute hand starts at the top of the clock facing the $12$. This represents $0$ minutes after the hour. Every minute after this, the minute hand moves one tick mark to the right.
For example, on the following clock the minute hand has moved $14$ tick marks from the top of the clock. So, the minutes are $14$.
Timeviseren er mellom $6$ og $7$, så den er etter klokken $6$ men ikke $7$ enda.
Timen er $6$.
The minute hand has moved $27$ tick marks from the top of the clock. So, the minutes are $27$.
The time is $6{:}27$.
