Hands

The clock shows 12 hours. After how many minutes will agle between hour and minute hand 90°?

Consider the continuous movement of both hands hours.

Result

x =  16.36 min

Solution:


360/60*x - 360/(12*60)*x = 90

330x = 5400

x = 18011 ≈ 16.363636

Calculated by our simple equation calculator.
