Six Seconds to Answer

If a clock takes six seconds to strike six times at six o'clock, how many seconds will it take to strike eleven times at eleven o'clock?


  1. It take eleven seconds to strike eleven times at eleven o'clock.

  2. If a clock takes six seconds to strike six times at six o'clock, that's 6/6 which can be converted to 1/1 then to 11/11 so yeah, 11 seconds :D

  3. Is it the right answer?

  4. The timer would naturally start with the first strike, so the chimes are not one second apart.

  5. It'll take 12 seconds. The 6 stikes are like this: "gong"...then 6 seconds for 5 more. So the 11 will be like this : "gong, then 6 seconds for 5 more and then 6 seconds for 5 additional, 12 seconds in total for 11 gongs.

  7. 1 and 1/5 second intervals between strikes. Multiplying this by 5 (not 6, since there is a strike at the very start) and you get 6 seconds (at 6 o'clock). Multiply this by 10 (not 11) and you get 12 seconds.

  8. It should be 11 seconds.
