## What is the angle between the two hands of a clock when it shows 30 minutes past 3 o clock?

To reach 3:00 from 12:00, the hour hand travels 3 hours, or 3 × 60 = 180 minutes. Hence, 180 × 0.5 = 90°. But the minute hand traveled 30 minutes from 3:00 to 3:30 in addition, i.e., 30 minutes. This time the hour hand travels **30 × 0.5 = 15°**.

## At what angle the hands of a clock are inclined when it is half past 8?

At half past 8 the minute hand points towards 6 and the hour hand points towards 2(1/2) marks between 8 and 9. The angle between 6 and 8 is **60 degree** and the angle 2(1/2) min. space is 15 degree. hence, total angle between two hands is 75 degree.

## What is the time between a 9 and 10 clock?

At what time between 9 and 10 o’clock will the hands of a watch be together? Explanation: To be together between 9 and 10 o’clock, the **minute hand has to gain 45 min**.

## What is the angle made by the hour hand in 20 minutes?

Hence, for 20 min it rotates for **10 degrees**. The angle between hr’s hand and min’s hand should be 10 deg. in every 60 minutes hour hand moves 30 degrees.

## What would 3/30 look like on a clock?

3:30 looks like this:

**The short hand points at a little past 3, the long hand points to 6**. The short hand tells us that the hour is 3. The long hand tells us that it’s 30 minutes after 3. 3:30 is between 3:00 and 4:00.

## At what angle are the two hands of a clock inclined at 20 minutes past 5?

In each hour, the hour hand goes 5 notches, or **30 degrees**. Because it is now 20 minutes past the hour, a third of an hour has passed. One third of 30 degrees is 10 degrees.

## How many times from 4pm to 10pm the hands are at right angles?

Every hour the hands of a clock are at right angles twice i.e. in 6 hours (4 to 10) they would be right angles to each other **12 times**.

## At what angle the hands of a clock are inclined at 40 minutes past 2 1 point?

Answer: 5:15, means hour hand is on 5 and minute hand is on 3. Now, 360/12=30. Angle between any two numbers on the clock is **30 degrees**.
