If you haven’t been exposed to the calculation of military time on a regular basis then it can seem unnecessarily challenging. It is easy enough to convert 0900 to 9 AM or 1100 to 11 AM (just drop the zeros), but after the clock strikes 12 noon it turns into a mystery.
You probably aren’t here to become a military time expert. So, what is 1400 military time or “fourteen hundred hours?” To convert the 1400 to standard time (AM/PM), all you have to do is subtract 1200 from 1400(or any military time 1300 or higher) to arrive at the converted PM standard time. All you need to do is add a colon “:” between the hours “2” and “00.” Any military time after 1200 is alway PM except for 2400 which starts the AM (12 AM) standard time notation.
What is 1400 Military Time
TIP: If you need to convert military time and the time is at or after 1 PM or 1300 (military time), then all you need to do is subtract 1200, add a colon between the minutes and hours, and put at PM after it.
Step 1. 1400 – 1200 = 200
Step 2. 200 + Add a “: ” after the 2 = 2:00
Step 3. 2:00 + PM (add PM if the original military time was higher than 1159) = 2:00PM
ANSWER: What is 1400 Military Time? 2:00PM
