mmmmm
tricky game
1) calculate angular speed, which is
0.5 degrees/minute (hours)
60 degrees/minute (minutes)
2) 60*24-0.5*24= 132

:roll:

360/60min=6degree/min

x*60min=24min => x=0,4 => 0,4 * 5min=2

24min-2min=22min*6=132!

christoph,

could you please explain why you divide 360 by 60? where does the 60 come from?

60 min = 360 degrees
24 min = x degrees

x= 24*360/60 = 144 degrees

132 it is

Take hours hand

12 hours it moves it make 360 degrees
so every 30 degrees it moves for 1 hour or 60 mins...

So for 24 mins it moves 12 degrees

Now take minutes hand

For every 60 mins it makes 360 degrees
so for 24 mins it makes 144 degrees.

Now find the diff = 132 degrees

First calculate angular movement for minute hand(MH):
In 1 hr MH moves 360 degrees
Thus in 24 minutes it moves 360/60 * 24 = 144

Next calculate angular movement of the hr hand (HH):
In 12 hrs HH moves ->360 deg
In 1 hr(60 min) it moves -30 deg
Thus in 24 min it moves -> 24/60 * 30 = 12 deg

Therefore, the angle between MH & HH = 144 -12 = 132 degrees.
