Digital Agent engineers solve complex puzzles for our customers every day. Can you solve the Puzzle we created for you?

How many times a day will the hour and minute hands overlap on a standard analog clock?


At midnight the hands overlap. They will overlap again between 1 and 2 (shortly after 1), 2 and 3, and so on until 10 and 11 (shortly before 11). They will not overlap again until noon, then the pattern repeats for the PM hours. This makes a total of 22 times.

For those of us that need a visual, check out this interactive clock.
