6. What time will it be 3 and 1/2 hours after 7:15 PM?

= 7:15 + 3:30

= 10: 45 PM *Ans.

7. What time was it 3 and 1/2 hours before 7:15 AM?

7:15 - 3:30

Since :15 minutes (7:15) is less than :30 minutes (3:30) you need to borrow an hour to 7 and convert that to minutes. 1 hour = 60 minutes. Now :15 + :60 = 75 minutes.

7:15 is now 6:75

6:75 - 3:30 = 3:45 AM *Ans.
