(24 hour clock) European DIGITAL CLOCK we don't use AM OR PM

The time is 17:00 what is the time after 237  minutes?

WE HAD THIS ON OUR MATH TEST TODAY HINT: USE modular arithmetic

No Idea how to solve this!

does the 2 mean the hours?

If I may ask what does the arrow pointing up word mean is that an indication of multiplication?

It's supposed to mean POW the 37 is the exponent of 2

Oh you mean like 37 time's itself okay that makes sense never used the symbol before I think you could use unit multipliers for this.

That is hard...

We had this on our math test today, You're supposed to use modulus and use the remainder or something

Intrisisting I don't know anything about modules I know unit multipliers and they can assit with this so I'll try my best ; )

okay so after multipling 37 by 37 I got 1369

then I used unit mulitipliers and got 1369 over 60 aka 1369 divided by 60 so I divided it and it turns out to be a big decimal number

so I rounded it to the nearest tenth. which is 22.82 so I would say add this to the current value you will indoubtly go onto the next day so after you go use the remaining hours.

17:00 is Military time because there are 24 hours in the day  so that would be 5: P.M

7:37 P.M would be the answer if 2 is hours and 37 is minutes

But as I was explainin it is called military time if you have a 24 hour clock and it says 13 or 16.

Everything is MINUTES 37 is the exponent of 2

That would be 74 then!

If we times it!

hmm 74 what?

Maybe I wasn't clear enough: The current time is: 17:00 (24 hour clock) what is the time after 237 Minutes

The math test in school was about modular arithmetic I think you're supposed to use that

17:00  (is 5 PM BTW)   + 2 hrs 37 min =  19:37     (or  7:37 PM)

or maybe you meant 237 minute = 3 hrs 57 min   added to 17:00= 20:57  (or 8:57 PM)

2^37 = 137,438,953,472 minutes

137,438,953,472 minutes / 60 minutes =2,290,649,224.5333..... hours

2,290,649,224.5333....hours mod 24 hours =16.5333............       hours

17 + 16.5333...  - 24 hours =9.53333 =9 hours and 32 minutes - the follwing morning!!.

(2^37)mod 60 =  32     min  after the hour

So

[2^37 - 32] / 60 =   2290649224

(2290649224 ) mod 24 =   16     hrs after 1700  hrs

The time shown on the clock will  be    16 hr 32 min  after   1700  hrs    (5PM)  = 9:32 AM =  0932 hrs
