Convert 12:40 PM
When it comes to the 12:40 p.m. time conversion, the minutes (the two digits after the colon) never change. To obtain the 24-hour clock time equivalent of 12:40 P.M. consider only the number of hours (the two digits before the colon), then apply these rules:
- If the period is “AM” and the number of hours is 12, then 12 changes to 00. Remove “AM”.
As the period is not AM, this rule does not apply.
- If the period is “AM” and the number of hours is in the interval [1;11], then the hour remains the same. Remove “AM”.
As the period is not AM, this condition does not pertain.
- If the period is “PM” and the number of hours is 12, then 12 remains 12. Remove “PM”.
As the period is PM and the number of hours is 12, process only this rule.
- If the period is “PM” and the number of hours is in the interval [1;11], then add 12. Remove “PM”.
As the number of hours is 12, this condition is not applicable.
