Before we start the calculation, we convert the clock time to 24-hour format.

**Adding time to clock**

*e.g., What time will it be in 30 minutes?*

Add the hours and the minutes separately. If the minutes are >= 60, subtract 60 from the minutes and add 1 to hours. If the hours are >= 24, set hours to "hours mod 24".

**Subtracting time from clock**

*e.g., What time was it 16 hours ago?*

Subtract the hours and the minutes separately. If the minutes are < 0, add 60 to the minutes and subtract 1 from hours. If the hours are < 0, add 24 and set it to "hours mod 24".

Convert the time back to 12-hour format at the end of calculation.
