On the planet Voltron they operate on a 142 hour day, so their clocks have 142 numbers with the number 142 at the very top (just like the 12 is at the top of our clocks). What number is directly opposite 27?

Note that....on a 12-hour clock....the number opposite  any integer N < 7 is given by :

 

N  +  (12/2)

 

And the number opposite any integer N  > 6  is given by :

 

N - (12/2)

 

So...this implies that on a 142-hour clock, since 27 is  less than 1/2 of 142, the integer directly opposite 27  is given by :

 

27  +  (142/2)  =

 

27  + 71  =

 

98
