What is the textbook asking of me when the question is, "What is the current time in the time zone in which you live"?

  • Geography (Ms. Sue) -

    Is it asking me to provide the current time at this precise moment?

  • Geography (Ms. Sue) -

    Yes.

    What time is it where you are? What time zone are you in?

  • Geography (Ms. Sue) -

    It is 7:30 P.M. where I currently live. My family and I live in the Pacific Time Zone.

    So then, when my textbook also asks what time it is in Greenwich, England, do I subtract eight hours from the current time of my city?

  • Geography (Ms. Sue) -

    Your time is correct.

    Add 8 hours to your time. It's now 3:30 A.M. Monday in Greenwich, England.

    Can you explain why I should add to the current time? The link you provided for me stated that it -8 hours, so shouldn't I subtract?

  • Geography (Ms. Sue) -

    To find Pacific time, you subtract 8 hours from Greenwich time.

    Greenwich is next to London. Look up London in this chart to find its time.
