Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(n\) is your input and \(12 + n\) modulo 12 is the output. If you want the time shown on the clock \(4\) hours after \(12\), then you must calculate the remainder you get when you divide \(12 + 4\) by \(12\), which is \(4\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's a long concept. Have you heard of clock12 arithmetic?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, it goes like this: If you wanna add two given times on the clock, you must first add them, then calculate the "extra" amount you got there after 12. So if you wanna add 6 to 7 o'clock, it won't be 13 o'clock. It'd be 1 o'clock instead because you are 1 "extra" after 12.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OK, but you do understand that time on the clock keeps repeating right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What if you want to know the time after \(x\) hours after \(12\) o'clock?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1After an hour, it is \(1\) o'clock. After two, it is \(2\) o'clock. You can make a table. y x 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 . . . . 1 13
