Hi Paul - thanks for writing to Dr. Math.

You can look up time differences on the Web at the World Clock site:

   http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/   
   http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedform.html   

When it's 4:00 P.M. in London, it is 10:00 A.M. (6 hours earlier) in 
Chicago.

On the last Sunday in October, the U.S. and in the European Union  
change from daylight saving time to standard time, setting clocks back 
an hour. Since both the U.S. and the U.K. do this, the difference in 
time will remain the same.
