Calling Your Friends

You have friends from all over the world that you like to talk to on the telephone.  They all live in different time zones.  For example you have one friend that lives in Madrid.  Madrid is 6 hours ahead of Montville.  That means when it is noon here, it is 6 p.m. in Madrid.  You have a friend in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Honolulu is 6 hours behind of Montville.  That means when it is noon here, it is 6 a.m. in Honolulu. The chart below shows all the time differences:

Buenos Aires, Argentina = 1 hour ahead
St. John's, Newfoundland = 1 1/2 hours ahead
Sao Paolo, Brazil = 2 hours ahead
London, England = 5 hours ahead
Madrid, Spain = 6 hours ahead
New Delhi, India = 9 1/2 hours ahead
Beijing, China = 12 hours ahead
Tokyo, Japan = 13 hours ahead
Chatham Island, New Zealand = 13 3/4 hours ahead
Chicago, Illinois = 1 hour behind
San Francisco, California = 3 hours behind
Honolulu, Hawaii = 6 hours behind

In this exercise you have to decide what time it is where your friend lives.
