The equation of a circle 2010-10-20
Silvan pose la question :
Hi, I just want to find the x,y values for the circumference of a circle...

Lets take a clock having its centre at (0,0) in a graph. I just want to know how to find the (x,y) co-ordinates for the curved path or the surface of the circle.. Is there any formula to directly align the curved path or the circumference of the circle in a graph for a known radius of a circle..

I feel it will be useful for me to draw a clock in a graph... :-)

The angle between the hands on a clock 2008-04-04
Kristin pose la question :
The question I need help with is : Bobo looked at the clock at 1:25. What was the precise measure of the angle formed by the hour and minute hands of the clock? Assume that each of the clock hands moves at a constant rate continuously around the face of the clock. Thus, in any given fractional part of an hour, each hand will move that same fractional part of an hour's worth of movement.

CARLA pose la question :
at a certain time i looked at a 24-hour digital clock and noticed some things about the time. (1 The number in the hours section plus the number in the minutes section makes 60.(2 One of the digits in the minutes section is the square root of the other digit in the minutes section.(3 The sum of the digits in the minutes section is the number in the hours section reversed. what is the time?

Kate pose la question :
While repairing a watch, a jeweler removed the hands and inadvertently replaced the hour hand on the min. spindle and vice versa. he set the hands to read 2:00pm, which was the correct local time when I picked up the watch.
