•    Revise digital times using the 12 hour clock. Remember that a digital clock is a type of clock that shows the time digitally (i.e. in numbers  e.g  4:00 ), as opposed to an analogue clock, where the time is indicated by the positions of rotating hands on a clock or watch.  For example -5 o’clock is 5:00, 11 o’clock is 11:00, half past 2  is 2:30 and half past  5 is 5:30


Write down the digital times for these:
1.    3 o’clock
