    A plane flew from Singapore to Paris at 1800 on the 26 January.
    The flight lasted 15 h 30 min.

    Singapore = 7:30
    Paris = 1:30

    7:30 - 1:30 = 6 hours in between

    18:00 in Singapore = 12:00 in Paris(January 26)

    12:00 + 15 hours and 30 Minutes

    3:30 January 27 is when the flight landed in Paris.

    HI again .

    Singapore is 6 hours ahead in time compared to Paris .

    So now the plane took off at 1800 (Singapore's time) , and Paris is 1200 .

    After 15 h 30 m , add that to 1200 , the plane landed in Paris at 0330 on the 27 Jan .
