What time is a quarter after 5?

I am wondering why some people don't know how to tell time on a "old fashioned clock".

  • seriously 5:25? didn't you learn to tell time in the 1st grade????

    yes 25 cewnts it a quarter of al dollar (100 cents)

    an hour has 60 minutes... 15+15+15+15+=60 or 4X15=60

    quarter past 5 is 5:15/1715
