Note: Use this formula only when the given hours are H & H+1. And also, when H<6, the formula is T = 12/11 x [5H+30] Minutes Past H. Here, T = Required Time; H = initial position of hour hand; Now, when you substitute the given values, you will get – T = 12/11 x [5 x 7 – 30] minutes past 7 T = (12/11) x 5 minutes past 7 T = 60/11 = 5 + 5/11 minutes past 7 Hence, at (5 + 5/11 )min past 7, the hands of a clock will form a straight line but not be together. 2 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn Answer this question & earn 50 pointsSign In with FacebookSign In with GoogleSign In with Twitteror use Username or email* Password* Captcha* Remember Me!

Between 7 O’clock and 8 O’clock, the hands of a clock will come in a straight line but not be together when the time will be

(5 + 5/11 )min past 7## Explanation:

The formula to find the time of a clock when the hands are in a straight line but not together is

T =12/11 x [5H – 30] Minutes Past H(When H > 6).Here, T = Required Time; H = initial position of hour hand;

Now, when you substitute the given values, you will get –

T = 12/11 x [5 x 7 – 30] minutes past 7

T = (12/11) x 5 minutes past 7

T = 60/11 = 5 + 5/11 minutes past 7
