What time is it?Math brain teasers require computations to solve.
Between two and three o'clock, someone looked at the clock and mistook the minute hand for the hour hand. Consequently the time appeared to be fifty-five minutes earlier than it actually was. What time was it?
HintThere is a fraction involved in the precise answer, however this is not a mathematics test. If you get the answer within the nearest minute or so, consider your answer correct.
AnswerThe time must have been precisely 5 and 5/11 minutes past two o'clock. If you got 5 minutes or 5 and a half minutes after two, consider yourself correct.
