To understand the question better, it's easier to actually get an image, so I used : https://www.visnos.com/demos/clock

Lets solve for the hour.

**12 hours = 360°**

**1 hour or 60 mins = 30°**

You would count all hours within the minute and hour hands. There are 5 hours in between. So because 1 hour is equal to 30°, you would multiply 5 and 30, which would then be 150°.

Let's solve for the minute.

This is where the image is good to have. It wants the __obtuse angle__, so you would subtract 60 from 48, which would leave you with 12 minutes left. Because 60 minutes is equal to 30°, you would then cross multiply with something that looked like this:

60 / 30 = 12 / x

Solve for x and you would get 6°

Add your degrees 150° and 6°. Your answer is 156°. Voila!

H=2; M=48; A=abs((30*H) - (5.5*M));print"A =", A,"Degrees")

A = 204 Degrees

The minute hand is at 48 minutes. That is clear. The hour hand has moved: 48 / 12 = 4 minutes after 2, which is 14 minutes from 12 O'clock. So, 48 - 14 =34 minutes, the angle between the two hands of the clock. But each minute on the clock is 360 /60 =6 degrees . Therefore, 34 minutes x 6 degrees =204 degrees.
