    [HELP] Code to Convert Army Time to Normal Time?

    Like the program asks for the number of minutes and hours and it converts that to normal time.

    For example, if you put 23 hours then 14 minutes it then converts the time to 11:14.

    This is, once again, not a restaurant.

    Well, step 1 is to understand the problem. For instance, you do not. 11:14 is only part of the time denoted by 23:14. Are we in the am or pm? Honestly, is this even a real question, how hard is it? Did you notice any correlation betweem 23 and 11? How about 22 and 10?

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main (){
    	int hour, minutes;
    
    	cout << "Please enter the number of hours: ";
    	cin >> hour;
    
    	cout << "Please enter the number of minutes: ";
    	cin >> minutes;
    	
    	if (hour == 13)
    		cout << "1" << endl;
    	if (hour == 14)
    		cout << "2" << endl;
    	if (hour == 15)
    		cout << "3" << endl;
    	if (hour == 16)
    		cout << "4" << endl;
    	if (hour == 17)
    		cout << "5" << endl;
    	if (hour == 18)
    		cout << "6" << endl;
    	if (hour == 19)
    		cout << "7" << endl;
    	if (hour == 20)
    		cout << "8" << endl;
    	if (hour == 21)
    		cout << "9" << endl;
    	if (hour == 22)
    		cout << "10" << endl;
    	if (hour == 23)
    		cout << "11" << endl;
    	if (hour == 24)
    		cout << "12" << endl;
    
    	cout << "The time is " << hour << " : " << minutes << endl;
    
    return 0;
    }

    No, you don't seem to get it. Do you know how to add and subtract?
