120°

Step-by-step explanation:

θ=|(60H-11M)|

H = 8

M = 0

θ=|(60*8-11*0)|

θ=|(480-0)|

θ=|(480)|

θ=|480|

θ=480°

since it is more than 360, then we should subtract it

θ=480°-360°

θ=120°

A analog clock is divided up into 12 sectors, based on the numbers 1–12. One sector represents 30 degrees (360/12 = 30). If the hour hand is directly on the 10, and the minute hand is on the 2, that means there are 4 sectors of 30 degrees between then, thus they are 120 degrees apart (30 * 4 = 120).

Solution:

Let x be the measure of the angle formed by the hands of the clock;

1 turn = 360 degrees
4/12 turn = x degrees

Let's first reduce 4/12 to lowest term and that would be 1/3.

1 : 360 = 1/3 : x
(Cross Multiply)
x = 120 degrees

The measure of the angle formed by the hands of the clock is 120.

The angle formed from the hands of the clock of the time 7:25 can be solved using two steps. We have,

(Every hour is 30 degrees)
Between 7 hours and 25 minutes, it is 2(30) = 60 degrees.

Notice that from 7 o'clock, the short hand is 2 units after 7 and 3 units before 8 o'clock. The degree is 25/60 of an hour or 30 degrees.
To compute the excess, that is 30(25/60)=750/60=12.5 degrees.

Adding the two, we have 60+12.5=72.5 degrees.
