4 weeks – 7 days = 21 days
24 hours today = 0 hours tomorrow.
I feel like this is about time and how there are 24 hours in a day.
Joel, you’ve got it. More specifically, if it is 15:00 and you add 12 hours, it is 3:00, and if it is 4:00 and you subtract 7 hours, it is 21:00, or 9pm. On the 24 hour clock, you could write 24:00 at the end of the day or 0:00 at the beginning of a new day.
