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?

CHARLIE
Please see my last post-
Your solution is OK

However please note the "round " numbers:
d^2= 7
cos( A)=3/4
d(speed)/d(A)=3 units/radian
