150 degrees - 12.50 degrees = 137.50 degrees.

The hour hand moves  at  1/2°  every minute

The minute hand moves at  6°  every minute

 

Using  the top  of the clock  as 0°.....at   12:25  

The  minute hand has moved  25 * 6  =  150° from the top of the clock

The hour hand has moved   25 * 1/2  = 25/2  =  12.5°  from the top of the clock

 

So.....the angle  between them is     150 - 12.5  =  137.5°
