So, what time might 15:00 be equal to?

exactly! So just draw the hands for the time of 3 o'clock... short hand toward 3, long hand up at 12.

you can count time 12 hours at a time, like AM and PM, or you can count it from 0:00 up to 23:59. The times larger than 12:00 are in the afternoon, and you just keep counting around to the right number. So, 18:30 would be like 6:30 PM

And often, they leave out the " : " (colon) symbol, so 1500 is the same as 15:00 is the same as 3:00 PM... mid afternoon

that's ok... it's not "1500 minutes" It's just a different way of telling time. Sometimes military units use it... "we go to bed at 2200 hours" meaning 10:00 PM.

Does it make sense now? Given any time larger than 1200, you know it must be after noon, and maybe into the evening... you find the equivalent time on a clock by subtracting 12 hours from the amount you are given. So 1900 hours is 19001200 = 7 o'clock in the evening... 7:00 PM
