# How To: Simply read a binary clock

Sydus 93 teaches You Tubers how to read a binary clock by demonstrating the following process: A binary clock is made up of four rows and six columns of colored or uncolored dots. The rows, from bottom to top, represent the numbers one, two, four and eight. From left to right, columns one and two represent hours, three and four minutes and five and six are seconds. In order to tell time using the binary clock, begin at the left of your chart and simply determine which dots are filled in and add them together. For example, if dot number one in the hours column is colored in, this means the first number is one. Next, if the third dot in the hours column is colored in, this means the next number is four making it fourteen o'clock or two o'clock P. M. For minutes, simply repeat the process to determine the value of the filled in or colored dots. Should you see a column with more than one colored dot, add the value of each dot together to determine the representing numbers. For instance, if the dot in row one is colored in, this means one and if the third dot is colored in, this indicates four, thus one plus four is five. The columns which represent seconds continuously change at a rapid pace and are difficult to determine in an active binary clock; however, the process is identical to the steps taken for hours and minutes. He also reminds his viewers that the binary clock may either be in military or standard time depending on the type of binary clock used.
