## THE STOP-WATCH.

(

Money Puzzles)

We have here a stop-watch with three hands. The second hand, which

travels once round the face in a minute, is the one with the little ring

at its end near the centre. Our dial indicates the exact time when its

owner stopped the watch. You will notice that the three hands are nearly

equidistant. The hour and minute hands point to spots that are exactly a

third of the circumference apart, but the second hand is a little too

advanced. An exact equidistance for the three hands is not possible.

Now, we want to know what the time will be when the three hands are next

at exactly the same distances as shown from one another. Can you state

the time?
