If we define a day as 24 hours, the minute hand moves around the clock face once an hour. 24 times.

23 times

11 times in every 12 hours.

It rotates 25*360 = 9000 degrees.

44 times in 24 hours.(Considering the hour- and minute-hands only.)

Each minute on the clock is 1/60 of the 360 degree circle or 6 degrees. There are 20 minute lines between 12 and 4 therefore, 20 times 6 is 120 degrees.

24 times. When the minute hand lines up with the hour hand that is 0 degrees. This happens every hour.

180 degrees. The hands are a straight line. Or, to be technical, you divide the clock face (360 degrees) by the number of minutes there are in half a day (clocks only record half a day: AM or PM), which is 360/12*60, so each minute is half a degree. There are 360 minutes between the twelve and the six on a clock. Half of 360 is 180. This only works for times ON THE HOUR, otherwise, the hour hand moves for every minute of time passing.

72 times

60 times 24 = 1,440

44. 22 in each 12 hour cyccle.

Once
