## Calculate the time 5 hours ago

Here we use "8:26 AM" to represent the current time.

## Step 1: Note the Current Time

• Write down the current time. Let’s say the current time is represented by "8:26 AM."

## Step 2: Convert Current Time to 24-Hour Format (if in 12-Hour Format)

• If "8:26 AM" is in a 12-hour format, convert it to a 24-hour format for easier calculation.
• For example, if "8:26 AM" is 2:00 PM, convert it to 14:00.

## Step 3: Add 10 Hours to the Current Time

• Add 10 to the hour component of "8:26 AM."
• For example, if "8:26 AM" is 14:00 (2:00 PM), adding 10 hours will give 24:00 (or 00:00 on a 24-hour clock).

## Step 4: Adjust the Time if Necessary

• If the sum of the hours exceeds 24, subtract 24 from the result to get the time in the next day.
• For example, 24:00 becomes 00:00 the next day.

## Step 5: Convert Back to 12-Hour Format (Optional)

• If you prefer the 12-hour format, convert the time back.
• For example, 00:00 in a 24-hour clock is 12:00 AM in a 12-hour clock.

## Step 6: Verify Your Calculation

• Check your calculation to make sure it's correct.
• You can use online tools or apps to verify the calculated time.
