## You're assuming it's a 12 hour clock. Bwaahah. You lose. Next!!

Answer is 7.5 degrees. For every hour minute hand travels 360 degree so for 15 minutes it would have travelled 90 degrees. For every 12 hours hour hand travels 360 degrees so for every hour it travels 30 degrees. That means in 15 minutes it would have travelled 7.5 degrees. 🤘🏻✌🏻️

7.5 or 352.5

Equals to how much the hour hand moves which is 7.5

Lol D2 must be in human capital.

Lol I was messing with you guys. Chill out OP.

Oooh ey2 good response

@OP either you seriously messed up the original post or @KPMG your answer makes no sense

@Pwc - wrong but sensible.

Calculation or brain teaser?

YEAH RIGHT @ P1
Both @A

I think 7.5... 1/4 (15 min of 60) of 1/12 x 360

7.5

7.5

ITT: people that can't do math

D2 - why it doesn't make sense to you?
