What time is it? Find the missing numbers. It is the missing number of minutes after the missing hour.

This is the minute hand. It’s pointing to number four. The minute hand always starts at number 12 which is o’ clock or zero minutes. And each number on the clock represents five minutes. If we count in fives from 12 to four — five, 10, 15, 20 — we can see that it’s 20 minutes past the hour.

To find the hour, we need to look at the hour hand. We can see that the hour hand has just passed number six. This means it’s 20 minutes after six. The missing numbers are 20 and six.
