COMMENTS

At which a.m. times h:m:s (with fractions of seconds) does the minute hand overlap with the hour hand on an analog clock? This is problem 43 of the quoted Loyd/Gardner book where also the solution is given (pp. 412, solution pp. 1801 in the German version).
a(n) gives the full second for the (a.m.) hour h=n = 0,1,2,...,10, when the minute hand overlaps the hour hand on an analog clock, provided the minute is A178181(n), and the fraction of the second is A183033(n)/11.
For the same problem on an analog quartz clock (discrete seconds) the best approximation with rounded seconds is given in A181874.

FORMULA

a(n) = floor(300*n/11) (mod 60), n=0..10.


EXAMPLE

The eleven overlap times are:
00:00:00 plus 0/11 s, 01:05:27 plus 3/11 s;
02:10:54 plus 6/11 s, 03:16:21 plus 9/11 s,
04:21:49 plus 1/11 s, 05:27:16 plus 4/11 s,
06:32:43 plus 7/11 s, 07:38:10 plus 10/11 s,
08:43:38 plus 2/11 s, 09:49:05 plus 5/11 s,
10:54:32 plus 8/11 s.
The next time would be 12:00:00.
