What is the measure, in degrees, of the acute angle formed by the minute hand and the hour hand on a standard clock when it indicates 9:45?

The hour hand moves at   (1/2)°  every minute

 

Let the minute hand  be at  0°  at 9:45

 

At this time the hour hand  would have moved   (45)(1/2)°  =   22.5°  since 9:00

 

So  the acute angle = 22.5°
