A-when crossing the dateline traveling from east to west do we add or subtract a day?

B-When crossing the datline from west to east, do add or subtract a day?

C-Althought there is a change of day, does the hour change when crossing the datline?

D-If it Monday in Beijing, China, what day is it in Vancouver , Canda?


I think it would be a good idea for you to read up on the subject and form your own conclusions. We will be glad to critique your thinking, when we see evidence thereof.

i have no idea but i have tried but i am not sure... tell me plz if u have any idea
a- add
B- subtract
C- yes, 3hrs
D- Sunday


Three of your answers are correct. But usually, when the International Dateline is crossed, only one hour changes. There are some exceptions, though. People can choose any time they want for their locations.
