Assuming the hour hand moves steadily for the entirety of the hour, the angle formed by the hour and minute hand would be 55 degrees.

The hands form a right angle. At 3 o'clock, the minute hand points straight up, and the hour hand points straight to the right.

To be precise, as the little hand will also have moved, the answer would not be 240° for the large angle and 120° for the small angle, as some might say. The little hand will have moved 20°, so the answer would be that the large angle would be 220° and the small angle would be 140°.

For 3:30 to be a right angle, the hour hand would point to the 3 and the minute hand would point to the 6. But the hour hand will be halfway between the 3 and the 4, hence not a right angle.Also, at 3:30 the angle of the hour hand would be at 105 degrees, the minute hand at 180, and the angular distance between both would be 75 degrees.

3. The hour hand, the minute hand, and on most clocks, the second hand.

Assuming the hour hand moves steadily for the entirety of the hour, the angle formed by the hour and minute hand would be 55 degrees.

90 degrees - a right angle

At 12:30 the hour hand would be halfway between 12 and 1. So on the right hand side there would be an obtuse angle (165 degreees) whereas on the left there would be a reflex angle (195 degrees).

The hands form a right angle. At 3 o'clock, the minute hand points straight up, and the hour hand points straight to the right.

When it is 7:00, the hour hand and minute hand of a 12-hour clock form a 150° angle.

90 degrees

At 12:25, the hands of a clock make two angles, one of 137.5 degrees (an obtuse angle) and the other of 222.5 degrees.

Analog clocks have an hour hand and minute hand, and 12 numbers around a circle.

To be precise, as the little hand will also have moved, the answer would not be 240° for the large angle and 120° for the small angle, as some might say. The little hand will have moved 20°, so the answer would be that the large angle would be 220° and the small angle would be 140°.

the right hand if you were possibly looking at a picture, from that angle it would be left, and suppose you were behind the statue of liberty, from that angle, the torch would be in the right hand

No....No they didnt
