the hands of a clock are straight

1)when they overlap & face the same direction &

2)when the overlap & face opposite directions

this hapns evry 65 min(approx)for each case

=>in 1 day 24 hrs=> 24x60 min

therefore each case hapns (24x60)/65 times each day................= 22(approx)

therefore total # of times = 22+ 22=44
