Quarter Past and Quarter To
The hands of clock move from left to right. This is called the
clock wise motion. When the minute hand is on the right side of the clock, it
shows the number of minutes past the hour. When the minute hand is on the left
side of the clock, it shows the number of minutes to the next hour.
If we divide a clock into 4 equal parts then each part is one
quarter.
When minute hand is at 3, it shows 3 × 5 = 15 minutes, which is one quarter of an hour. The time is said to be quarter past hour. When the minute hand is at 9, it is 9 × 5 = 45 minutes. The time is said to be quarter to the next hour.
