2 the floor of a room is in the form of a rectangle 'x'cm long and 'y'cm broad but with one corner rounded off by a quadrant of a circle of radius 'r' ,'r' bieng less than both x and y show that the area of the floor is given by A=xy-(1-22/7/4)r^2

    1.) 7:15

    Danny's answer is not correct, (just look at the angle at 7:15)
    After 7:00 ....
    When the minute hand has moved x°, the hour hand is at 210 + x/60

    210 + x/60 - x = 90
    12600 + x - 60x = 5400
    -59x = -7200
    x = 122.0338° or 20.34 minutes, 20 minutes + appr 20 seconds

    so the time is 7:20:20
