22 times

Overlap happens once 12/11 hour. So 24÷12/11=22 Then overlap occurs 22 or 21 times a day.

23 times in all.Note that from 11:00 to 11:59 (am or pm) the hands can never overlap. Thus from 10am to 11:59am, the hands will overlap just once at around 10:54am. The hands will overlap again at exactly 12:00pm (noon). And from 12:01pm to 12:am (midnight) the hands will overlap another 11 times.The following times are the approximate overlapping times.10:54am12:00pm (noon)1:06pm2:11pm3:16pm4:21pm5:27pm6:32pm7:38pm8:43pm9:49pm10:54pm12:00am (midnight).

Twenty two each.

the hands of a clock are straight 1)when they overlap & face the same direction & 2)when the overlap & face opposite directions this hapns evry 65 min(approx)for each case =>in 1 day 24 hrs=> 24x60 min therefore each case hapns (24x60)/65 times each day................= 22(approx) therefore total # of times = 22+ 22=44

Infinitely many. Unless you consider the Planck time as the smallest, indivisible unit of time so that time is not a continuous variable.

None. I don't click the clock. The clock clicks as the hands go around the dial or the old fashioned numbered clock flips the numbers.

clap your hands three times and rub your index finger
