Like Clockwork (Posted on 2004-02-27) Difficulty: 4 of 5
A clock's minute hand has length 4 and its hour hand length 3.

What is the distance between the tips at the moment when it is increasing most rapidly?

huh? ... jeez Ady... what do you have against defining WHAT the variable is (in English) before using it? And then showing why you are setting up an equation that way...

What you are trying to do isn't at all clear to me.
