**3**:

**15**, the

**minute hand**will beperfectly horizontal pointing towards

**3**, whereas the

**hourhand**will be moving towards 4. Also, the

**hour hand**musthave covered 1/4 of

**angle between 3**and 4. The

**anglebetween**two adjacent digits is 360/12 = 30 degrees. Hence, 1/4of it is 7.5 degrees.

Likewise, what is the angle between the hour hand and minute hand of a clock at time?

The **angle between** hr's **hand and min's hand**should be 10 deg. The **angle between hour** and **minutehand** in 4:20 is 10 degrees. For a **minute**, the **hourhand** rotates by 30/60 = 1/2 degrees. hence, for 20**minutes** it rotates by an **angle** of 20*1/2 = 10degrees.

**3**:

**40**,

**angle between hour hand**and

**minute hand**of a

**clock**is 130°.

Besides, what is the angle between the hands of a clock at 3 o clock?

Therefore, we can say that the **angle between** thetwo **hands** is degrees. Another way to think of this is toimagine the **clock** at a nearby time. At **3**:00, the**hands** of the **clock** form a right **angle** of 90degrees.

The **angle between** hr's **hand** and **min'shand** should be 10 deg. The **angle between hour** and**minute hand** in **4**:**20** is 10 degrees. For a**minute**, the **hour hand** rotates by 30/60 = 1/2 degrees.hence, for **20 minutes** it rotates by an **angle** of**20***1/2 = 10 degrees.
