Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one of the easier ways would be is to multiply to figure out the total number of minutes there are in the 12 hours and divide it by 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Each day, the clocks have gain a 5minute gap between each other, so how big does the gap have to be to become 12 hours :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would say... 720 minutes per 12 hours, so the 2 minutes clock will be accurate again in 720/2/2 days = 180 days, the 3 minutes clock in 720/3/2 = 120 days. LCM of 180 and 120 is 360, so once a year?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I've shown my reasoning above, I got 180 days. I don't know HOW it could be 1800 or 1200 days, can you elaborate amir.sat?
