# I started my two clocks at the same. one is slow and loses 2 minutes every hour the other one is fast and gains 1 minute every hour. how long will it take for the faster clock to be 1 hour ahead?

20 hours because the fast clock technically gains 3 minutes every hour. An hour has 60 minutes, so if you divide that by 3 you get 20.
