 On a clock, what is the difference in the angle of the minute hand and the hour hand when the clock shows 3:15.5 AnswersYou can answer this question a number of ways with trig. But the simplest way is to think about it. a Circle (clock) is 360 degrees. A clock as 60 mniutes on it. 360/60=6 degrees per minute If the clock reads 3:15, that means the hour hand is on the 3, and the minute hand is 1 minute past the 3. Therefore the answer is: 6 degreesThe minute hand is front of the hour hand.The answer is simply, ZERO!Show More ResponsesIf a clock reads 3:15, then the minute hand is on the "3" (at zero degrees given a standard unit circle configuration). The hour hand is a little ways past the 3, a quarter of the way to the 4. There are 360/12= 30 degrees in each hour section. Since the hour hand has advanced a quarter of the way through the 3-4 hour section, 30/4= 7.5 degrees. So the hour hand is at -7.5 degrees and the minute hand at 0 degrees. There is a 7.5 degree difference.6 degrees

 Where do you see yourself in 5 years?2 AnswersI really dislike this question, in reality people and goals change.

 I was asked about the tools I'd be working with while on the shop floor. There are several different plugs that get sent down the line. 1 AnswerThat's why i was going to be kept in the shop for a 3 month 'learning' time, to learn the said tools.

 Why is a man hole cover round?2 AnswersA circle is the only shape if turn any way that can not fall into its own shape. Also a reason i came up with is that when you take the cover off you can roll it out of the way easier than carrying it.I like those reasons but would like to add that the circle distributes the stress better as well which I think would be the key factor in design on an object that has heavy vehicles driving over it.
