How to Tell Time Accurately Using 24 Hour Time

This timeline shows 24 hour time at the top and digital time at the bottom. It shows our time only with no minutes. Look at the timeline, can you see the 2:00 a.m in digital time is the same as 02 in 24 hour time? When you write 24 hour time, you must always show the minutes. This is also said as 0200 hours. If 2:00 a.m in the digital time is 0200 in 24 hour time, what would 2:00 p.m be in 24 hour time? Let’s use the timeline again to help. Reading along the timeline, we can see the 2:00 p.m in digital time would 14 hours in 24 hour time. This would be written as 1400.
