A show of hands


Go to solution Solved by wolfgang,

Question

A clock is observed.

The hour hand is exactly at a minute mark, and the minute hand is six minutes ahead of it.

 

Later, the clock is observed again.

This time, the hour hand is exactly on a different minute mark, and the minute hand is seven minutes ahead of it.

 

How much time elapsed between the first and second observations?

Actually

 


 

the second time the minute hand was 7 minutes BEHIND the hour hand

first position   1:12

second position  8:36

 

elapsed time 7:24 [assuming it was in the same 12 hour period]
