Fun math problem. This was a cool little problem I saw at work today. When the time is 8:30, what acute angle do the hands on a clock make? (In degrees)

How is it 75?

60 is along the right line of thinking, that was my guess when I first saw the problem. You have to remember, when it's 8:30, the hour hand is NOT on the 8. It's halfway between the 8 and 9
