# One O'clock

If 2 hours ago it was as long after one o'clock in the afternoon as it was before one o'clock in the morning. What time

would it be now?

would it be now?

### Answer

Nine o'clock. Since there are 12 hours between the 2 times, and half of that time is six, then the halfway mark would have to be 7 o'clock. If it were 7 o'clock two hours ago, the time would now be nine o'clock.Hide Answer Show Answer
