Answer :

We know, in clock 1 rotation gives 360°

i.e. 60 minutes=360° and 12 hours=360°


So,1 minute=6° and 1 hour=30°


Now, For hour hand:


3 hours=3×30°=90° and for another 40 minute= (30°÷60)×40=20°


i.e. angle traced by hour hand is 90°+20°=110°


Now, for minute hand:


40 minute=40×6°=240°


i.e. angle traced by minute hand is 240°.


So, the angle between hour hand and minute hand=240°-110°


=130°
