Time zone tables are provided for the following regions:
In each of the tables:
It's easier to do these calculations in 24-hr time, instead of using am and pm. Change your local time to 24-hr time by adding 12 if it's past noon. Two pm, for example, would become 14:00.
Find your own location in a table. Subtract the number in the second column (or the third column, if it's summer) from your local time.
Example: Suppose you live in Greenland and it's 14:00. The table says -3. Subtracting a negative number is the same as adding, so subtracting -3 from 14:00 gives 17:00. Now you know what the UTC time is right now.
Find the location in a table. Add the number in the second column (or the third column, if it's summer and ) to the UTC time.
Let's say one wants to know the time in New South Wales in Australia. The table says +10, or +11 if it's between October and March. Let's say it's June, so we add 10 to 17:00, and get 27:00.
This is more than 24:00, so it's already the next day in New South Wales. Subtract 24:00, and see that it's 3 am there.
