## How many five minute intervals are there on a time clock?

Each increment on the clock face is one minute. Looking at the left-hand-side of the clock, moving anti-clockwise from 12, each number is a multiple of 5 minutes to the next hour. So, from 12 we can count in fives to find out how many minutes there are until the next hour is reached.

**Why do you count minutes by 5?**

The hour hand is between 7 and 8, so the hour is 7 because you always choose the number that comes first.
