# Two hours ago it was as long after one o’clock in the afternoon as it was before one o’clock in the morning

Math Riddle:  Two hours ago it was as long after one o’clock in the afternoon as it was before one o’clock in the morning. What time is it now?

Answer: The correct answer is it would be 9:00 pm. There are 12 hours between 1:00 pm and 1:00 am and half of that is six hours.

Half-way between would be 7 o’clock. Two hours later it would be 9:00 o’clock.
