# Imagine an analog clock set to 12 o'clock Note that the hour and minute hands overlap. How many times each day do both the hour and minute hands overlap How would you determine the exact times?

The hands do not overlap between 11 to 12, so only 22 overlaps per day. ---------------------------------.
1 of 2: Cjcarr2000 answer: --------------------------------- It occurs 12 times a day Overlap Time = Hour : (Hour * 5) 12:00, 1:05, 2:10, 3:15, 4:20, etc. --------------------…------------- 2 of 2: Stormnoone answer: --------------------------------- It occurs 22 times a day. (as Digbybare said, and not 24 as i was said at first) Exact times = Hour : ( Hour * 65 / 12 ) that is, when it is "1:05", the hour hand has moved from '1' to '2' (that total distance is 5 minutes) as the minute hand has moved from '12' to '1' (that is exactly 5 minutes, or Hour * 5); so the Hour hand must has moved "Hour / 12" of the 5 minutes: = Hour : [ (Hour * 5) + (Hour / 12) * 5 ] = Hour : [ (Hour * 5) + (Hour * 5) / 12 ] => we take out the common (Hour * 5) = Hour : [ (Hour * 5) * (1 + 1/12) ] = Hour : [ (Hour * 5) * 13/12 ] = Hour : (Hour * 65/12). ------------------------- So the Successive exact time should be 1 : ~5.4 2 : ~10.8 3 : 16.25 4 : ~21.67 5 : ~27.08 6 : 32.5 ......,and so on.

# What is the angle between the two hands of a clock when the time is 3 hours 35 minutes?

102 1 / 2 o .
There are 12 digits on the clock face => 360 0 / 12 = 30 o between each digit. As the minute hand makes one revolution, the hour hand only moves 30 o . Thus when the minute hand as moved 35 mins past the hour, or 35/60 of a revolution, the hour hand will have moved 35/60 x …30 o = 17 1 / 2 o past the digit of the hour. Thus at 03:35 the minute hand will point to the 7 digit and the hour hand will point 17 1 / 2 o past the 3 digit, or 12 1 / 2 o before the 4 digit. So the angle between them is the angle between the 4 and 7 digits plus this bit extra = 3 x 30 o + 12 1 / 2 o = 102 1 / 2 o (MORE)

# Why does the army use a 24 hour clock?

A 24-hour clock reduces the possibility of confusion and errors that can occur using "AM and PM" times. Military times are expressed as four digits, such as 0830 meaning 8:30 AM, or 2030 which is 8:30 PM. When a time is 1300 or greater, you can subtract 1200 from it to identify it as a PM time. … Not just the military, but such businesses as transportation (airlines, trains) and computer processing companies use a 24-hour clock internally, and convert them to AM and PM for their customers. Many also use a worldwide standard time (UTC or Zulu time) which always identifies the same time in any time zone around the world. This also reduces confusion over the exact time an event occurs or is scheduled to occur. (MORE)

# How many times a day does the number 1 appear on a 24 hour clock?

An hour has 60 min. Assuming the clock has only the hour and minute displayed, every hour 1 would appear at 1, 11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,10,21,31,41,51. Counting 11 as once there are 15 1s in an hour. In the 24 hours, only 0,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,22,23 have no 1 s in them. Therefore 1 aooears 165 times i…n those times. As for hours 1,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,21, there is always a 1 in the clock. This makes 1 appear 12*60 times which is 720 times.

# How many times will the digit 7 appear on a 24 hour digital clock?

158 In every hour of the day except 7 am and 7 pm the digit 7 appears on the clock 6 times. you take 2 hours (7am and 7pm) out of 24 hours and the rest are 22 hours. Then 22 hours multiply x 6 because in each of the 22 hours 7 appears 6 times, 22 x 6 makes 132. The remaining 2 hours from 24 are 7am …and 7pm, 7 appears 13 times in each of these hours; 7:00, 7:07, 7:17, 7:27, 7:37, 7:47, 7:57. Then you do 13 x 2 because there are 2 7:00 (am and pm), you get 26. Now the total of 132 from 22 hours and 26 from the other 2 hours brings the total of 158; 132+26=158, our final answer is 158. so in 24 hours the digit 7 appears in 158 different times on a digital clock.

# What would the 24 hour clock time be if the clocks were 16 minutes slow?

The clocks would read 16 minutes earlier than the actual factual time. Sadly, you haven't told us what time it really is. Incidentally, a clock can be 16 minutes 'behind', but it can't be 16 minutes 'slow'. If a clock is 'slow', then the amount of time it loses depends on how long it's been … running since it was set, and would be expressed in units of "minutes per hour", or some other such dimensionless ratio.
