Puzzle No. 042

Puzzle no. 042 – angle time.

  • Grand Plaza – Otaki-san
  • 55 Picarats

First, try to think of all the times in a day that have the same number three times in a row. There might be too many to remember, so use the Memo function.

Also, why would the puzzle note times like 00:01 or 00:09?

Ignore any angles that you would measure going from the minute hand to the hour hand.

Additionally, the largest angle is greater than 180 degrees, so you can disregard any angle you find that’s less than that.

Are you sure you didn’t miss some times? When you express the times in 24-hour format, you’ll have more possibilities to consider than with a 12-hour format.

In addition to 11:11 and 22:22, there are 31 possible choices. If you didn’t find that many already, you may have overlooked something. Try to relax and think about the problem again.

The following times that have three identical numbers in a row have an hour-hand-to-minute-hand angle of more than 180 degrees: 14:44, 15:55, 22:23 to 22:29, and 23:33.

Which of these times can be excluded because 12 lies inside the angle you measure? If you just think a little longer, you should get it.
