Here it goes- If you look at a clock and the time is 3:15 then what is the angle between the hour hand and minute hand?

Take a couple of seconds to think about it and you must be thinking this is easy peasy.

You can rethink for a minute(Don't worry,this isn't an interview :p )

Now coming to the answer,the most common mistake that most of us made was we didn't take into account the movement of the hour hand of the clock between 3 and 4 as a result of those 15 minutes.

Like this.

Since the angle subtended by the entire clock is 360° ,so in an hour, the angle covered by the hour hand is 360/12=30° and in quarter of an hour,the angle is 30/4=7.5°

So,the answer to the question is 7.5°

PS- if you haven't heard of this question before and got it right in the first go then do comment because I haven't seen anybody getting this right in their first attempt.

Cheers.
