### How convert 05:38 pm to 24-hour (or military)?

1. Step One: To convert 05:38 pm (five thirty-eight pm) to 24-hour, should know that: when we're converting the time from a 12-hour clock to a 24-hour clock, we just convert the hours, in this example: 5 hr (five hours). And we leave the minutes and don't convert it. in the current example, it's 38 min (thirty-eight).

2. Step Two: If the time is "am" we leave the number of hours as is. And if the time is "pm" we add 12 to the hour.

In our case, it's 5 pm (five pm), So we will add 12 to the number of hours. like (5 + 12) = 17. The result is: 17:38 (seventeen thirty-eight).
