I need help concerning time zones.

How do you compare differences in the time zones of the United States and other countries?

A chart states that in the Central Standard Time Zone, Paris, France is apart by 7 hours. Currently, it is 10:00 in Paris, France. What time is it there in the Central Time Zone?

Do I have to subtract or add 7 hours?

That's confusing to me, too, even though I've traveled abroad a lot.

Think of it this way. The sun rises in the east so it gets light in the morning in Paris before it gets light in the U.S.
