    Maybe this is what they mean... so ummmm... let's call "the hour" .. ya let's call that time zero. So a quarter hour before that would be -15 minutes, yes? And we want to count all the way to 30 minutes past the hour, past the zero point. So we're counting from -15 to +30. So we subtract -15 from the 30 to get the total value. 30 - (-15)

    yes you need to calculate 30 - (-15). It should give you a nice number.
