what is the decrease in angle value if the hands should be on the steering wheel is on the face of a clock at 3 and 9, but instead is at 2 and 10.

3 and 9 form a 180^{o }angle ....2 and 10 form a 120^{o} angle ...... you can finish....

I am not sure about that because when we calculate the angle of a clock dont we use something like Angle = Minute *60/360. What I am not sure is do I assume it to be 3:45 and 2:50 or 9:15 and 10:10. The angle value I get when I assume the clock hands as 3:45 and 2:50 is 12.5 while 9:15 and 10:10 gives me the answer 57.5. and there is my confusion
