## How to calculate what time was it 27 minutes ago

To find out what time was it 27 minutes ago, you need to subtract 27 minutes from the current time.

For example, if the current time is 3:15 PM, you would subtract 27 minutes to get 2:48 PM.

The steps are:

- Note the current time (e.g., 3:15 PM)
- Subtract 27 minutes from the current time
- If the minutes value is less than 27, subtract 1 hour and add 60 - 27 minutes

- The resulting time is the time 27 minutes ago

It's a simple subtraction problem, but you need to account for the hour changing if you're subtracting minutes that are greater than the current minute value.
