So, the second strike is at 6:00:01.2, then 6:00:02.4, 6:00:03.6 and then 6:00:04.8. Ergo, if each strike takes 1.2 seconds, at 11 o'clock, with the first strike at 11:00:00.0, the second will be at 11:00:01.2, and so on, nine more times (the sixth at 11:00:06.0, seventh 11:00:07.2, eighth 11:00:08.4, ninth 11:00:09.6, tenth 11:00:10.8) until the final one will be at 11:00:12.0 thus taking 12 seconds. Mind you, it's easier to work out than I've made it appear: if each strike takes 1.2 seconds, there will be ten times that, 12 seconds, between the first and eleventh strikes. The reason everyone got it wrong is that you forget the word "between", as in _between_ the first and sixth strike, it takes six seconds.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-81517184684582881002012-05-06T11:35:52.922-04:002012-05-06T11:35:52.922-04:00It should be 11 seconds.It should be 11 seconds.Strangehttp://yesiknowthat.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-44913162119149053642012-04-18T15:40:46.439-04:002012-04-18T15:40:46.439-04:001111Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-54734732573408549882012-04-09T13:25:09.996-04:002012-04-09T13:25:09.996-04:001 and 1/5 second intervals between strikes.

Multiply this by 10 (not 11) and you get 12 seconds.The Twelve-Fingered Onehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14988012776485126587noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-49946021275776334542012-04-09T13:21:39.654-04:002012-04-09T13:21:39.654-04:00This comment has been removed by the author.The Twelve-Fingered Onehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14988012776485126587noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-36016089151504924712012-04-07T19:09:00.298-04:002012-04-07T19:09:00.298-04:00It'll take 12 seconds.
