In maths 8 plus 6 is 14 but when we count from 8 to 6 in clocks it comes out to be 10 hours. Why?

already exists.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

Because clocks go from 1 to 12 and then start over. We work on base 10, so we start counting over at 1 sooner. So from 8 to 12 is 4 hours. Then from 12 to 6 is 6 hours. 4 hours + 6 hours is 10 hours. The 2 on the clock is 14 on a 24 hour clock, and that is 6 hours after 8.

What is the LCM of 16 14 12 10 8 and 6?

Dissolving into prime divisors we get 16 = 2 4 14 = 2 1 * 7 1 12 = 2 2 * 3 1 10 = 2 1 * 5 1 8 = 2 3 6 = 2 1 * 3 1 Taking the greatest exponents for each prim

14 - 8 plus 2 - 6?

14 - 8 + 2 - 6 = -2

How do you count 6 8 time?

Very Very Carefully Another answer: It's easy to demonstrate in person, but kind of hard to describe in print. Try this: Snap your finger in an even, steady rhythm, 1
