# Time when minute hand and hour hand coincide

Given time in hours, find the time in minute at which the minute hand and hour hand coincide in next one hour.

Examples :

```Input : 3
Output : (180/11) minutes

Input :7
Output : (420/11) minutes
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach :
1. Take two variables for hour “h1 and h2” and then find the angle “theta” [theta = (30 * h1)] and then divide it by “11” to find the time in minute(m). We are dividing with 11, because the hands of a clock coincide 11s time in 12 hours and 22 times in 24 hours :

Formula : This can be calculated using the formula for time h1 to h2 means [11m / 2 – 30 (h1)]
this implies [ m = ((30 * h1) * 2) / 11 ] ]
[ m = (theta * 2) / 11 ]
where [theta = (30 * h1) ]

where A and B are hours i.e if given hour is (2, 3) then A = 2 and B = 3 .
