How many times in 24hours do the hands of an analogue clock form a right angle?

HINT: Use a real clock and move the hands around!

There may be a prize for those who get the correct answer!

I am pretty sure that it is 8 because I worked it out 2 ways:

1:figured out myself how much it turns into that shape on a clock a day.

2: I used my watch.

Nope..sorry Jay

is it 4 as it is a right angle 3,6,9 and 12

I think it is 2 in 24 Houser because I had some help with my Nan

Thanks Millie. Hope you are feeling better soon.

i think it is 48

The answer is twice in 24hrs.

From 12 mid-night, it is am. 3 am is a right angle. But as we go on in the day, 12 midday is pm. Once again, 3 pm is a right angle. That is the correct answer!

Good reasoning but not the correct answer im afraid.

Really?!!😞

Unfortunately yes. But it was a great effort 🙂

My Mathematical Instincts say that there is 2 in each hour, so, 24 x 2 = 48. So, I’m 100% sure I’m right.

Answer isnt correct apparently. But good effort 🙂

8 because 4 is on 2 is on each side and the other side is 2 that is 4 going 2 times it is 8.

Good effort Baileigh but this isn’t the correct answer

I think it is 4 because all the angles that I can see is a right angle

44.
