| 1. When the watch shows exactly 5 o’clock, the hour hand is at 5 and the minute hand is at 12.

2. If the arrows were on the number 6 and 12, which are on the same straight line, the angle is respectively 180 degrees.

3. Between the numbers 12 and 6 there are only 6 equal spaces between adjacent numbers, which means that an angle of 180: 6 = 30 degrees is formed between each two adjacent numbers.

4. Thus, if the time is 5 hours, then the angle between the hands is 5 * 30 = 150 degrees.
