What is the number of degrees in the smaller angle formed by the hands of a clock at $8:55$?

The big hand is on the 11    

The little hand is   11/12 of the way from 8 to 9

 

So they are both on the left hand side of the clock.

from 9 to 11 is   2/12 *360 = 60 degrees

1/12 of 1/12 * 360 = 2.5  degrees

 

So I get  62.5 degrees

 

You need to check.
