How to Convert Time, Continued Converting GMT to ZT When you convert GMT to ZT, you must apply the ZD to your ZT using the opposite sign; plus (+) if in east longitude, minus (-) if in west longitude. Example  1:  Assume  that  you  are  in  longitude  156°  58'E,  GMT  is  Olh 00m  00s  on  01  July.  You  want  to  find  ZT. Step Action 1. Find your ZD. Divide 156° 58' by 15 and you get 10. 2. Determine  the  sign  of  the  correction.  You  are  in  east longitude, so the sign is minus (-10). 3. Apply the correction using the opposite GMT 01h 00m 00s ZD +10 ZT 11h 00m 00s Example 2:  Assume that you are in longitude 145° 00' W and GMT is 16h  00m  00s  on  30  December.  You  want  to  find  ZT. Step Action 1. Find  your  ZD.  Divide  145°  00'  by  15  and  you  get  10. 2. Determine  the  sign  of  the  correction.  You  are  in  west longitude so the sign is plus (+10). 3. Since you are going from GMT to ZT, apply the correction using the opposite sign (-10). GMT ZT 16h 00m 00s ZD -10 06h 00m 00s 5-12
