At 6:30 the minute hand will be pointing directly at the six and the hour hand will be half-ways between the six and the seven.

 

The number of degrees between any two consecutive hours on a clock is 30o.  [360o / 12  =  15o]

 

Therefore half-ways between the six and the seven is 15o.  [30o / 2  =  15o]
