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!
