    I really do not know how to do this kind of work!!

    PLEASE HELP!!

    Since there are 360 degrees in a circle and the clock has 12 hours, divide: 360 / 12 = 30. In one hour, the minute hand moves 30 degrees.

    In half an hour, it moves 15 degrees.

    Can you figure out the rest?

    Actually, it is the hour hand that moves 30 degrees in one hour.

    the minute hand moves 6 degrees every minute.
    eg. from 12:00 to 12:15 the minute hand would form a right angle or 90 degrees
    so 90/15 = 6

    so for #5
    9:00 to 9:05 is 5 minutes

    the others are really easy as well
    or 30 degrees
