OK, for that one, take the arbitrary time and express in decimal form. Then subtract it from the multiple of 12/11 that represents the next time the hands cross. So, for 3:15;

3:15 =3.25
Next hands crossing =36/11 = 3.273
Difference = .023 hours = 83 seconds

Weird is normative in foo.

Honestly, you guys are so far off the mark it's embarrassing to me to watch you shame yourselves.

When the clock reads 3:15 there is NO "angle" between the hands because the hands are parallel to each other. Sheesh.

the poster meant that the hands rotate on a parallel plane and that there is never any angle between them on that plane. thanks for playing. pick up your complimentary bottle of yoohoo from the fridge at Ben's place.

Why hasn't anyone asked "give an example of the time when there is no angle between the 2 hands on the clock?"

What is the sound of a one handed clock clapping in the forest next to a bear and the pope?
