Problem of the week! Mwahahahaha!

We had a great MathCounts problem this week that caused much discussion and consternation.  The problem was

“At how many minutes after noon do the hour hand and minute hand of an analog clock first meet again?  Express your answer to the nearest whole number.”

This led to a discussion in one of my math classes as to what the exact time the two hands meet.  This is a much more challenging problem.  Have fun!
