The smaller angle between the hands of a clock at 8:43 is what?

asked by Matthew
  1. hour hand : 8:43 = (8 + 43/60)/12
    = 523/720 around the face of the clock

    if we let 12:00 be 0°, then the hour hand
    forms an angle of 523/720 * 360 = 261.5 °

    the minute hand forms and angle of 43/60*360 = 258°

    so the angle between the hands is 3.5°

    check my arithmetic
