### Hint

Look at the title of the teaser!### Answer

1:0113:12

7:06

The number in the "hours" position is the numerator of a fraction and the number in the "minutes" position is the denominator. Write the fractions so that all of the "denominators" are 12 , then reduce to lowest terms.

The sequence is:

6:12 (reduced to 1:02)

7:12

8:12 (reduced to 2:03)

9:12 (reduced to 3:04)

10:12 (reduced to 5:06)

11:12

So, the next three terms are:

1:01 (12:12 reduced)

13:12

7:06 (14:12 reduced)
