Really struggling with my worst subject maths... Does anyone know this answer... 1a) What is the angle between the hour hand and the minute hand at 5 o'clock? 1b) What is the angle between the hour hand and the minute hand at half past three? Many thanks for reading through my questions!!<33 cheers!!<33

Okay... think of the clock face as a circle (which it obviously is) and think of each hour division as being 30 degrees (360 divided by 12) So the angle between 12 and 5 (hour and minute hands at 5 o'clock) would be 150 degrees and the angle between the hands at 3:30 would be 90 degrees.
