Trivia: What is the angle between the hands of a clock at 5?
What is the number of degrees between the hands of a clock at 5?
At 5:00, the long hand is pointing straight up and pointing
to the twelve and the short hand is pointing to the five.
Since a full circle is 360 degrees, each of the twelve
times on a clock can be divided in to 30 degrees because
360/12 = 30. Thus, the angle between the hands at 5:00 is
150 degrees.

picture.
