## Hint 1

XIt's not 0!

## Hint 2

X## Hint 3

X## Answer:

XThe minute hand is pointing directly at the '3'. The hour hand is 1/4 of the way between the '3' and '4'. Since there are 12 numbers the angle between each number is 30 degrees. So the angle between the hands are 30 degrees * 1/4 = 7.5 degrees
