# What is 12 o Clock military time?

Answered by Robert Dupre

12 o’clock in military time is represented as 1200. In military time, the hours range from 0000 to 2359, with 0000 signifying midnight and 1200 signifying noon. To convert 12-hour standard time to military time, you simply add 12 to the number of hours if it is in the afternoon or evening.

For example, if it is 3 o’clock in the afternoon, you would add 12 to 3, resulting in 1500 in military time. Similarly, if it is 8 o’clock in the evening, you would add 12 to 8, resulting in 2000 in military time.

It is important to note that when writing military time, a colon is typically inserted between the first two and last two digits to separate the hours and minutes. So, 12 o’clock in military time would be written as 12:00.

In some cases, you may come across military times that are written as 0000 or 2400. Both of these represent midnight, the start of a new day. However, 0000 is more commonly used to indicate midnight, while 2400 is used less frequently. These times are equivalent and can be used interchangeably.

To convert military time back to standard 12-hour time, you need to subtract 12 from the number of hours if it is greater than 12. For example, if you have a military time of 1900, you would subtract 12 from 19, resulting in 7 o’clock in the evening.
