What is the number of degrees in the acute angle formed by the hands of a clock at 6:50?

#2**+2 **

Hour hand at 6 oclock is at 180 degrees (past 12) then moves anothe 1/2 dgree per minute and is at

180 + 50 (1/2) = 205 degrees

The minute hand move 6 degrees per minute past the 12 position and is at

50 * 6 = 300 degrees

the angle between them is 300 - 205 = 95 degrees (which is NOT an acute angle !!)
