how can i solve this question- disney has 2 clocks.unfortunately both of them are faulty.1 of them loose 2 mintues every hour while the other gains during that time.he sets both of them correctly at midnight on 31 decemeber 2003 that is at the precise moment the year 2004 commenced.when will 2 clocks again show exactly the same time?
Is something missing?
"while the other gains the same amount during that time"
Is the clock a 24 hour clock or 12 hour clock?
Assuming the other gains also 2 minutes at every hour, and the clock is a twelve hour clock, then they will show the same time when one loses 6 hours and the other one gains 6 hours.
How long would the first clock lose 6 hours?
