Congratulations to Spencer Kent on the Kangaroo Maths Challenge

After achieving a Gold Award in the recent UKMT Maths Challenge, Spencer Kent was invited to participate in the Kangaroo Challenge on June 14th.  The Junior Kangaroo is a one-hour multiple-choice paper, with 25 questions, which is sat in school. It is  similar to the Junior Challenge question paper (but more challenging!). It starts with this little gem:

At which of these times is the angle between the minute hand and the hour hand of a clock equal to 150 degrees? 

A 9pm  B 8pm  C 6pm  D 5pm  E 4pm

Can you work it out?

For the answer and a try at question 2, watch this space on Friday 24th...
