How far apart is the hour and minute hand a 3:15?
No matter what time of the day, the minute and hour hand are always touching in the center of the clock face.
Phil McCracken on
360 degrees on the clock. Each number is 360/12 = 30 degrees apart from one another. at 3:15, the minute hand is at 3 while the hour hand is 15/60 = 1/4 away from 3. So (1/4) * 30 = 30/4 = 7 + 2/4 = 7.5 degrees
Is that 3:15 a.m or p.m.?
Sherman Hemsley on
The previous two answers are incorrect. If it is 3:15, the hour hand and minute hand are in the same orientation. Therefore they would be 0 degrees apart.
