# Add hours on a clock without using “mod” (12-hour clock)

Challenge Level: Growing experience

## Requirement:

Write a program that adds hours on a clock without using the “mod” operator. You need to keep subtracting 12 from the new time (original time + hours to add) until the new time is less than or equal to 12.

Hints
• Make variables called original_time and hours_to_add and set their values to the inputs entered by the user. Make a variable called new_time and set its value to the sum of the original_time and hours_to_add. Keep subtracting 12 from the new_time until the new_time is less than or equal to 12. Display the value of the new_time as the output.
Programming Reminders
# Print a string directly
print("Hello World!")

# Print a variable
print(my_var)

#### Variables

# Set a variable as a string
fruit_name = "Apple"

# Set a variable as an integer
pieces_of_fruit = 7

# Set a variable from a calculation
cost_of_fruit = pieces_of_fruit * cost_per_item

# Add one to a value
pieces_of_fruit += 1

#### Conditionals

# Find out the discount on fruit
if pieces_of_fruit > 100:
print("Bulk discount applies")
elif pieces_of_fruit > 5:
print("Discount applies")
else:
print("No discount")

#### For loops

# Print numbers 0-9 - remember Python starts counting from 0
for num in range(10):
print(num)

#### While loops

# Print numbers 0-9 using a while loop and a variable
num = 0
while num < 10:
print(num)

# Increment the variable by one.
# It will prevent an infinite loop!
num += 1 

#### Lists

# Create a list of fruit
fruit = ["Apple", "Banana", "Orange", "Pear"]

#### Functions

# Create a function which prints a greeting
def greeting(name):
print("Hello " + name)

# Call the function
greeting("Spiderman")
