COMMENTS

After 12 hours or 43200 seconds, the hands overlap at 12:00 and the cycle repeats.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..36.

Mathlete's Corner, How many times during the day do the hands of a clock overlap?

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = round(n*43200/11).

EXAMPLE

For n=1, 3927 would correspond to slightly after 01:05.
