### Financial Consultant at PFM was asked...

Jul 28, 2010
 What is the angle between the hands of a clock at 6:15? 5 Answers97.5 degrees.I think it's actually 93.75#fail, it is most definitely not 93.75 degreesShow More ResponsesThe angle formed within the time that has passed is 270 degrees. The angle formed between the hands of the time that has yet to pass, but the clock is reading 6:15 is 90 degrees. Reason being, a clocks hands go 360 degrees to pass through each second of time. At exactly 6:00 the hands create an even 180 degree angled line...each side of the hands will equal 180 degrees; added together equal exactly 360 degrees. Therefore 180 plus 90 degrees (hence 15 mins form 90 degree angles) equals 270 degrees. That leaves the remainder angle of time that has not passed as 90 degrees to equate to the full 360 degrees the clock is based off.A circle = 360 degrees. Each half of circle = 180 The numbers 1 and 6 each denote the beginning and middle of an hour, respectively. The fifteenth minute of an hour 15 is the halfway point between 1- 30 (aka it is half of 180; or a quarter of 360). Thus, the hands at 6:15 are 90 degrees.
