- The clock one was the hardest. Does anyone agree?(83 votes)
- I agree it is hard. I got confused(6 votes)

- Probably should have used a different term than "turns".(30 votes)
- The clock one was the hardest out of all(21 votes)
- It would seem as though for each one we take the number of times (it occurs) / the number of objects there are.

In the clock problem (between 7 o'clock and 10 o'clock, there is 3 hours) we know that a clock has 12 hours which can be written as 3/12 -> 1/4. 360 / 4 = 90(5 votes)

- The clock problem is the one I found easiest except for the worm problem. Is this just me or...?(10 votes)
- honestly i found the clock problem to be the hardest(6 votes)

- For me the pizza one was hardest because I can't understand that. Anyone agrees?(14 votes)
- It's degrees per slice eeeezzz boi(1 vote)

- This doesn't make any sense whatsoever. It has to make at least one full turn to get to another hour. Plus another 30 degrees to get to the next hour! How is 90 degrees possible? I went through a ton of trying to solve this problem. How is 90 degrees even the answer?(11 votes)
- That's why I have a hard time with this.(3 votes)

- i kinda don't get it but I went threw it because I tried my best!(11 votes)
- the pizza one make it all easy. ,, half is 180 ,, thirds of 180 is 60 if u think 12 hours on a clock 6 is 180. Means every 2 hours is 60° = every hour is +30° , thanks guys. Its awesome(8 votes)
- this does not make any sense!!(9 votes)
- i don´t get the clock at all(5 votes)
- Each hour segment is = 30degrees.

Each segment looks like this, starting at the top of the clock, going clockwise (12 to 1=30degrees, 1 to 2 =30 degrees, 2 to 3 = 30 degrees, 3 to 4 = 30 degrees, 4 to 5 = 30 degrees.... and so on all the way around the clock.(2 votes)
