In fifteen minutes the minute hand of a clock will move 90 degrees, or three hour labels.

Well, the minute hand traverses 360 degrees in 1 hour.Or 360 degrees/60 minutes = 6 degrees per minute.So 12 minutes = 6 x 12=72 degrees in 12 minutes.[Remember 15 minutes = 90 degrees.]

60 minutes = 1 rotation = 360 degrees So 12 minutes = 360*12/60 = 72 degrees.

On a normal 12-hour clock, the minute hand moves thru 360° in 1 hour, 360° in 60 minutes, or 6° every minute. 6° x 45 = 270°

450 degrees - equivalently 90 degrees as 360 is the starting position, the same as 0.

90 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

It is 90 degrees

90 Degrees.

90 degrees

Since a clock hand turns 360 degrees in 60 minutes, it will move 30 degrees in 5 minutes and 120 degrees in 20 minutes.

In fifteen minutes the minute hand of a clock will move 90 degrees, or three hour labels.

Which hand? The minute hand moves 360 degrees in 60 minutes which is 6 degrees per minute. So in 37 minutes it moves 37*6 = 222 degrees.

60 degrees

In 60 minutes, the minute hand completely circumnavigates the face of the clock,and returns to where it was 60 minutes earlier. That's a travel of 360 degrees.

The minute hand of a clock turns about 360 degrees each hour.
