  10. Cinderella:

    Gold:

    6) Cinderella leaves home at 10.26pm and takes 20mins.
    so I add 20mins to 10.26pm which is 10.46pm.

    10.26 + 20 = 10.46.

    7) The ugly sisters start to get ready at 9.20am, they take 4hr and 30 minutes. so I added these times together.

    9.20 + 4.30 = 13.50. so its 13.50pm

    8) the ball start at 10.30pm and last for 4hrs and 6 minutes. so I add the times together.

    10.30 + 4.06 = 14.06. so its 14.06pm

    9) Fairy god mother arrives at 4.16 pm and takes 28 minutes to find her. so I added the times together.

    4.16 + 28 = 4.44. so its 4.44pm

    10) the princes finds the shoe at 12.00 , and takes 8 hours and 20 minutes to find Cinderella. so I added the times together.

    12.00 + 8.20 = 20.20. so its 20.20pm or 08.20pm
