With metric time the day is broken into 10 hours.
A metric hour is broken into 100 minutes.
A metric minute is broken into 100 seconds.
In fact metric time could be decimal time
There is no AM or PM with metric time. Just 10 hours in the day. To get a good night sleep (8 standard hours) you’d sleep for 3.33 metric hours. If you go to bed at 9:50 metric time (about 10:45pm in standard time), wanting to get a good night sleep, you’d wake up at 2:75 metric time (roughly 6:45am standard time). Remember, a half hour in metric time is 50 minutes, and a full hour is 100 minutes. One metric minute before « midnight » (10:00 on the metric clock) would be 9:99 in metric time.
Time is Money
The logic you use to tell time with metric time is very similar to how you think about money (assuming US Dollars). One metric hour is like a 100-dollar bill. One metric minute is a 1 dollar bill. And each metric second is a penny. Each day (10 metric hours), has 1,000 minutes, and 100,000 seconds. It’s an interesting way to think about the time we get to spend each day.
