I know the answer to this riddle:
How often does the minute hand pass the hour hand on an analog clock?
I know they pass 11 times every 12 hours, but I don't understand how to get to it, no matter how many resources I refer to.
Does anyone have a non-confusing explanation of the solution in simple English?
I'm a programmer, so I asked how to implement this in code on Stack Overflow, but they closed my question and referred me to this forum. They said I have to understand the problem before trying to implement it. So someone please help me :)
The real problem I'm having is: what formulas can I use to get that result? Say for example the "x" hand that moves at a certain speed, and a "y" hand that moves at a slower speed. How do I get that constant from the information given?
