counter-clockwise It sounds as if you might be asking:

How often are the hands of a clock pointing in opposite directions

(at exactly 180 degrees)? If that is the question, the answer is:

Over the course of a 24 hour day, it will happen 22 times. The

reason it's not 24: It happens, usually, once after every hour.

But, after 5, the next occurance is right at 6. Then, the

next occurance is after 7. So you don't have 3 separate

occurances after 5, after 6, and after 7. If this isn't what you

meant, it was fun answering anyway.
