Time on a clock quarter = quarter of an hour = 60/4 = 15 minutes example, quarter to three = 2:45 quarter past three = 3:45 Also half past two in some countries is referred as half to three.

Quarter to means 15 minutes before the hour; e.g. 5:45 Quarter past means 15 minutes after the hour; e.g. 16:15

An hour is 60 minutes and if a quarter has passed after the hour then that means 15 minutes have passed past the hour.

Quarter to 10.

You simply add "et quart" (pronounce [eh kar]) after the hour from which the quarter is past. "et quart" literally means "and a quarter".Hence "a quarter past ten" becomes "dix heures et quart" ("ten hours and a quarter")
