For 30 min. I got 8pie inches. For 20 mins., I got (16pie/3)inches. but i don't know if these answers are correct. if my answers are wrong, please show me the steps to solving this.

Thanks.

angular speed for a minute hand is 1 rev per hour, or 2PI rad/hr

for 20 min:8in*2PI/hr*1/3 hr

You are correct.
