We know that clock has two hands.

The smaller hand is called hour hand and the longer one is known as hand. By using both the hand we can tell the time of the day.

In this post we will learn how to tell time of the day and then will solve some worksheets in order to get familiar with the concept.

**Hands of the Clock**

Below picture shows image of the clock with hour hand and minute hand

You can observe that the needle which is larger in size is known as minute hand and the smaller needle is known as hour hand.

**Telling Time to Hours and Minutes**

The hour hand of the clock tells the hours.

We have already discussed how to read hours using hour hand in previous lessons.** ****Click here to learn about hour hand time reading**.

**Minute Hand Reading**

Here we will learn how to read minutes of time using Minute hand of the clock.

In the above clock, the numbers in red color shows time in minutes.

It means that if **minute hand is pointing at number 1**, **then time is 5 mins**

Below table shows number in clock and the corresponding time in minutes.

Let us solve some examples to understand the concept better.

**Example 01**

Hour Hand is at number 8

Hour Time = 8 Hours

Minute hand is at 5

Minute Time = 25 Minutes

Hence the time is 8 Hour, 25 Minutes

**Example 02**

Hour Hand is at number 3

Hour Time = 3 Hours

Minute hand is at 10

Minute Time = 50 Minutes

Hence the time is 3 Hour, 50 Minutes

**Example 03**

Hour Hand is at number 7

Hour Time = 7 Hours

Minute hand is at 9

Minute Time = 45 Minutes

Hence the time is 7 Hour, 45 Minutes
