# Metric Clock: Take 2

5 Steps

## Step 4: Determine metric time, from reguar time

I have changed my method since last time.
Let m = minutes in regular time
Let h = hours in regular time
Let mt = metric time
(h + m/60)/24 = mt

This will return a decimal. This decimal is the metric time.

how to set the time??????????

You begin by pressing the left button until it says what you want to change. If you want to set decidays, you press it until the LCD reads "Setting: deci". Once you have that set on what you would like to change, press the right button. Pressing the right button increases the number (let's say decidays) by one, until it reaches ten when it cycles back to 0. You need to stop pressing the right button when it reaches the value that you want it to read. Repeat this process for all the values.

Hope this helped!

What is the programming for the Metic clock?
decidays mean what?
centidays mean what?
millidays mean what?
microdays mean what?

A deciday is a tenth of a day. So if five decidays have past, then you are half way through the day, or at noon. A centiday is a 100th of the day. So if 7 decidays have past, and 5 centidays, it would be three quarters of the through the day, or 18:00. A milliday is a 1000th of the day. So if 1 deciday has past, 2 centidays, and 5 millidays, it would be one eighth of the way through the day, or 3:00. Microdays work the same way, only one microday is one one-hundred millionth of a day.

I don't understand what you mean. Can you explain more easily? Can you write a normal clock programming?
because i am just a primary school student: :)
