00:00:00.800 --> 00:00:04.120
Steffan’s watch shows five minutes past nine.
00:00:05.440 --> 00:00:07.760
The watch is 12 minutes fast.
00:00:08.680 --> 00:00:09.920
What is the correct time?
00:00:11.440 --> 00:00:18.240
We know from the question and the picture that the time is 9:05 or five minutes past nine.
00:00:19.640 --> 00:00:23.480
We also know that the watch is 12 minutes fast.
00:00:24.720 --> 00:00:28.800
So we need to subtract 12 minutes from 9:05.
00:00:30.600 --> 00:00:37.360
We could start by subtracting five minutes which takes us to nine o’clock.
00:00:37.360 --> 00:00:42.160
Then, we need to subtract another seven minutes because seven and five is 12.
00:00:43.560 --> 00:00:50.800
So the correct time is 8:53, which we could also write as seven minutes to nine.
00:00:52.520 --> 00:00:58.400
To find the answer, we had to subtract 12 minutes from the time shown, which was 9:05.
00:01:00.040 --> 00:01:05.640
So the correct time should be 8:53 or seven minutes to nine.
