2.Create a ‘time’ variable containing the time 8:45:01:000150 PM
24 Hour time
Import time from datetime
Create the variable t2 and assign time with hour, minute, second and microseconds
3.Print the hour only contained in t3
from datetime import time
t3 = time(hour = 15, minute = 10, second = 0)
4.Modify t3 to 4:10 PM given:
t3 = time(hour = 15, minute = 10, second =0)

yall any help would be greatly appreciated. i am new to using the datetime and time modules


@dominicl645 here:

import time

start = time.time()
end = time.time()

total = start - end

but can you explain to me how i would use the time module?please, cause thats all im working with in my next unit for my python programming class, and i would really like to know how i would use it incase i run into another problem, and also i dont want people to think that i am letting other people do my homework too. @RYANTADIPARTHI

thx. i just looked at it and it is so confusing. is there a way you could simplify it? @RYANTADIPARTHI


@dominicl645 just follow the directions. If you want to stop something:


if you want seconds:

start = time.time()

And that's the basic. Read the link for more.

hey, how do you get 'p.m' and 'a.m' to show up using the time module? @RYANTADIPARTHI


@dominicl645 you can't do that in the time module. but you can in datetime module:

from datetime import datetime
