Answer Quickly

If you look at a clock and the time is 3:15, what is the angle between the hour and the minute hands?


  1. 7.5 degrees... or pi/28 (radians)

  2. wouldn't it be zero?

  3. 7.5 deg
    Now don't tell me it is an electronic clock.

  4. Mike, which is it?

  5. As 3:15 rolls around, the small hand (assuming you aren't using an electronic clock!) has moved off of the 3 and should be a quarter of the way to 4.

    So the answer is not zero, although that was my first answer to this question when I saw it. I don't know if that makes you feel any better? ;-)

    The answer is 7.5 degrees.
