What is the number of degrees in the acute angle formed by the hands of a clock at \(6:30\)?
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]
