## Finding out what time was it 6 hours ago

To determine what time was it 6 hours ago, you simply need to take the current time and subtract 6 hours. For example, if it’s currently 3:45 PM, then 6 hours ago would have been 9:45 AM.

Here are the steps to calculate what time was it 6 hours ago:

Note the current time in hours and minutes (using a 24-hour or AM/PM format).

Subtract 6 hours from the current hour.

If this puts you at a negative hour, add 24 to find the correct hour from the previous day.

The minutes stay the same as the current time.

Let’s walk through a few examples:

Current time: 2:30 PM

2 PM – 6 hours = 8 AM

Therefore, 6 hours ago was 8:30 AM

Current time: 11:15 AM

11 AM – 6 hours = 5 AM

Therefore, 6 hours ago was 5:15 AM

Current time: 1:00 AM

1 AM – 6 hours = -5 (negative)

-5 + 24 = 19

Therefore, 6 hours ago was 7:00 PM the previous day

Knowing how to calculate what time was it 6 hours ago can be handy for scheduling, keeping track of your day, or analyzing durations of events.
