The minute hand will cross over the hour hand once every hour. So in 12 hours, the answer is 12 times.

Eleven (11) times, counting the one at Noon.

We're assuming that you mean the "hands" on a clock. Short hand . . . the "hour hand", goes all the way around in 12 hours Long hand . . . the "minute hand", goes all the way around in 1 hour On some clocks, there's another long hand that you can see moving. That's the "second hand". It goes all the way around in 1 minute, 60 times in 1 hour.

Once

22 times. hour hand meets minute hand each hour. Example : they meet at about 1h6, 2h17,... ( it's not exactly). But the 11th hour, they don't meet any times. So in a round of hour hand, it meets minute hand only 11 times and 22 times in a day

6:00 and then at intervals of 1 hour 5 minutes 27 and 3/11 seconds, 11 times in a 12-hour period.

23

24

Twenty-four times of course !

Once per hour.

Once

They will be at right angels, 14 times per week.

eleven times If you start at 12:05, the minute hand passes the hour hand once between 1:00 and 2:00, once between 2:00 and 3:00, and so on through the 10:00 hour. After 10:54, the next time the minute hand passes the hour hand is 12:00.

That happens ten times in a 12-hour period.

A lot of times

youre mom

4380 times (365x12) leap year: 4392 times (366x12)

If we define a day as 24 hours, the minute hand moves around the clock face once an hour. 24 times.

long hand (min) on the 12 and the short hand (hour) on what ever hour it is

twice i think

There have to be 12 times this happens. The hour hand must complete 12 rotations in a 12-hour period. In each of those rotations it will be opposite the minute hand once.

60 mins in 1 hour

60

3600 times.

Disregarding the second hand (for a few seconds), the hour and minute hands overlap (point in the same direction) 22 times in a 24 hour period. It happens once after every hour except the 12 o'clock hour. After 12 o'clock, the next occurance is after 1 o'clock. The fractions of a minute required for these overlaps do not always coincide with the number of seconds that the second hand would have to register in order for the second hand to 'join' the hour and minute hands. The only times that all three hands are perfectly overlapping (pointing in the same direction) is at 12 midnight and 12 noon. So the second minute and hour hands are in the exact same place only twice during every 24 hour period. The hour and minute hands join each other every 65.454545 minutes, or 32.727272 degrees. The minute hand advances 163.636363 degrees each time the hour and minute hands overlap.
