Quarter to 10.

a quarter past ten is 'dix heures et quart' in French.

Ten to nine on a clock means it is ten minutes until it is nine o'clock. Half past ten means it is 10:30, or a half an hour past ten. Quarter past nine/quarter to 9 means it is 9:15/8:45, or 15 minutes after/before nine.

10:15

You simply add "et quart" (pronounce [eh kar]) after the hour from which the quarter is past. "et quart" literally means "and a quarter".Hence "a quarter past ten" becomes "dix heures et quart" ("ten hours and a quarter")
