Clock rings
2 notes at quarter past the hour,
4 notes at half past,
6 notes at three-quarters past.
8 notes plus an additional number of notes equal to hour
At 1 pm, clock rings 8+1 = 9 notes.
Similarly, clock rings 10,11,12,13 notes at each time of 2 pm, 3 pm, 4 pm, 5 pm.
In between an hr, clock rings 2+4+6=12 notes.
therefore, clock rings 12+12+12+12=48 notes from 1pm to 5pm.
Total number of notes = 9+10+11+12+13+48=103

Form 1 PM to 5 PM.

Exclcuding the actual hour chime we have 20 (1PM)+20(2PM) +20(3PM)+20(4PM) +8 (5PM) = 88

Now the hour chimes are 1+2+3+4+5 = 15

Total = 88+15 = 103
