How many times a day hands on a clock overlap?

Result

n =  22

Solution:

α=β \alpha = \beta

36060m+360k=36012m60\dfrac{ 360^\circ }{ 60} m + 360^\circ k = \dfrac{ 360^\circ }{ 12}\dfrac{ m}{ 60}

6m+360k=0.5m6^\circ m + 360^\circ k = 0.5^\circ m

6m -0 = m/2; m = 2/11*0 = 0 min ==> 0:00:00
6m -360 = m/2; m = 2/11*360 = 65.45 min ==> 1:05:27

6m -1800 = m/2; m = 2/11*1800 = 327.27 min ==> 5:27:16
6m -2160 = m/2; m = 2/11*2160 = 392.73 min ==> 6:32:43
6m -2520 = m/2; m = 2/11*2520 = 458.18 min ==> 7:38:10
6m -2880 = m/2; m = 2/11*2880 = 523.64 min ==> 8:43:38
6m -3240 = m/2; m = 2/11*3240 = 589.09 min ==> 9:49:05
6m -3600 = m/2; m = 2/11*3600 = 654.55 min ==> 10:54:32
6m -3960 = m/2; m = 2/11*3960 = 720 min ==> 12:00:00
6m -4320 = m/2; m = 2/11*4320 = 785.45 min ==> 13:05:27
6m -4680 = m/2; m = 2/11*4680 = 850.91 min ==> 14:10:54
6m -5040 = m/2; m = 2/11*5040 = 916.36 min ==> 15:16:21
6m -5400 = m/2; m = 2/11*5400 = 981.82 min ==> 16:21:49
6m -5760 = m/2; m = 2/11*5760 = 1047.27 min ==> 17:27:16
6m -6120 = m/2; m = 2/11*6120 = 1112.73 min ==> 18:32:43
6m -6480 = m/2; m = 2/11*6480 = 1178.18 min ==> 19:38:10
6m -6840 = m/2; m = 2/11*6840 = 1243.64 min ==> 20:43:38
6m -7200 = m/2; m = 2/11*7200 = 1309.09 min ==> 21:49:05
6m -7560 = m/2; m = 2/11*7560 = 1374.55 min ==> 22:54:32
6m -7920 = m/2; m = 2/11*7920 = 1440 min ==> 24:00:00 !!! h>23

6m -8280 = m/2; m = 2/11*8280 = 1505.45 min ==> 25:05:27 !!! h>23

Do you solve Diofant problems and looking for a calculator of Diofant integer equations? Do you have a linear equation or system of equations and looking for its solution? Or do you have quadratic equation? Do you want to convert length units? Try conversion angle units angle degrees, minutes, seconds, radians, grads.
