To use the clock above, you can enter time as hours, minutes, or seconds.
You can use numbers in the form of integers, decimals, or fractions.
On the First Day, I familiarized myself with the basic relations on the clock:
The minute hand moves 12 times as fast as the hour hand. (Thus, the hour hand moves one 'notch' when the minute hand moves 12 of them);
The angle between two successive numbers is 30 degrees (this is 1/12 of 360); and thus each minute is 6 degrees of arc.
I also found approximations for certain values, thus familiarizing myself with the problem it presented:
Example: Estimate where the hands coincide after 4:00.
Solution: It cannot be as late as 4:24, for then the minute hand is beyond the hour hand (the hour hand has moved exactly two notches.) So the time must be a bit less than 4:22.
Problem for the Reader: Estimate the time where the hands coincide after 9:00.
(Answer: Just a bit after 9:49)
