Welcome to the Math Salamanders 24 Hour Clock Conversion Worksheets.

Here you find our selection of 24 hour time math worksheets to help your child learn
to convert times between the 12 and 24 hour clock.

In the 24 hour clock, there are no 'am' and 'pm' labels.

The hours start at zero and go throught to 23.

All 24 hour clock times should be written hh:mm or hh:mm:ss, where h is the hour, m is the minute and s is the seconds.

Sometimes the colons are omitted bewteen the hours and minutes.

Converting from 24 hour times to 12 hour times

The following simple steps will help you change a 24 hour time to a 12 hour time with 'am' and 'pm'.

- If the hour is exactly 12, then simply label it as a pm time.
- If the hour is 00, then change it to 12 and label it as an am time.
- If the hour is greater than 12, then simply subtract 12 from the hour and label it as a pm time.
- Otherwise, simply label it as an am time and take away any leading zeros.

The minutes and seconds never change when changing between 24 hour and 12 hour times.

Examples

14:36 = 2:36pm 02:12 = 2:12am

09:24 = 9:24am 17:48 = 5:48pm

00:45 = 12:45am 12:15 = 12:15pm

20:36 = 8:36pm 23:56 = 11:56pm

- If the hour is a pm time, then simply add 12 to the hour.
- Otherwise, the hour does not change. If it is less than 10, then add a zero before the digit.
