The minute hand moves 360 degrees in one hour = in 60 minutes = 6 degrees per minute.(50/60) x 360 = 300 degrees

The full circle of the clock is 360 degrees. The distance between any two figures on the clock is therefore 360 ./. 12 = 30 degrees. When it's 6 o'clock there are six figures between the hour hand and the minute hand, so 6 x 30 = 180 degrees.

There are 360 degrees on the clock face that the minute hand travels in one hour which is 6 x 10 minutes. So the degrees turned by the minute hand in 10 minutes is 360/6 = 60

Hour hand moves 30 degrees, minute hand moves 360 degrees.

The hour hand on a clock will move 30 degrees every hour. (This assumes a "regular" clock and not a 24-hour clock.) The hour hand of a clock will move 360 degrees in 12 hours. That means it will move 360/12 degrees in one hour. That's 30 degrees in an hour. There are 60 minutes in an hour, so the hour hand will move 30/60 degrees in a minute. That's 0.5 degrees in a minute.
