Hands On A Clock (Posted on 2004-07-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Do the three hands on an analog clock (hours, minutes, seconds) ever divide the face of the clock into three equal segments, i.e. 120 degrees between each hand?

No. there isn't a time when all 3 hands are 120 degrees from each other.

Charlie's calculations show the second hand isn't in the correct position when the other 2 are 120 degrees.
