short answer

150o

long answer

a hour hand pointing at 5 and the minute hand pointing at 12.

the calculation is as follows

5(360/12) = 150

the 12 is because their are 12 numbers on a clock, ie the clock is divided evenly into twelfths. 5 is the fifth number after 12 so the resulting number is multiplied by 5

Q: What is the angle between the hands of a clock when it is exactly 5 o'clock?

270 degrees

get yourself a cartesian circle, or just look at one online and translate it from there 3,6,9, and 12 would all be 90 deg increments.

It is a obtuse angle.

There is no angle "between" one hand of a clock.

It is a obtuse angle.

The answer depends on the angle between WHAT and WHAT!

nine oclock and six oclock

the letter three and oclock

a right angle is formed because the angle measures 90 degrees

Yes, because "o'clock" is a contraction of "of the clock".
