How was 20:43 converted to 08:43 PM ?
1. Step One: To convert 20:43 (twenty forty-three) to 12-hour, firstly, we didn't convert the minutes, we leave it. In our case it will be ( :43 forty-three ). and we just convert the hours.
2. Step Two: If the number of hours on military time (24-hour system) that we need to convert it, is less than 12:00, it will be the same on regular time (12-hour system).
In our case, It's 20 (eight), so we subtract 12 from 20 then add PM like ( 20 - 12 ). It will be 8 PM. (8 PM means 8 in the noon).
The final result is:08:43 PM ( In words: eight forty-three in the noon ). Look at the chart below.
