# What angle is between an hour and a minute arrows when time is 5:30?

I think you got that wrong bud, the answer should be 15 degrees.

15 degrees because at 5:30 the hour arrow is not at 5 but in the middle between the 5 and 6

No, at 5:30 the arrow will be pointing in the middle between the second and third grade = therefore its 2.5*6 = 15... or 30/2 = 15 !

I don't get your complicated formula... a full circle is 360 degree so a quarter of it, equal to 90 degrees. From 3-6 separated to three equal correspondent angles by 4 and 5 so 90/3 = 30 degree (clockwise) then 360 - 30 =330 degree (anticlockwise)

Yeah, you right man. 15 is correct.

minTheta = 30*(360/60) = 180 hourTheta = 5*(360/12) + (360/12) * (30/60) = 165 so the difference is 15 degree

Assume a circle is 360° and you 60 grades reprsenting each one 1 minute. 360/6=6°, so 1 degree equals 1 minute At 5.30pm the arrow will be pointing at the third grade between 5 and 6 which means there are 2 left: 2*6=12° is the accurate answer ;)

15 degrees plus or minus 180 degrees. (who knows how accurate the clock is)
