Hi guys I'm a high school student here in the Philippines and our school requires us to submit a thesis. Mine is to prove the formula for solving the angle between the hands of a clock at any given time. My research adviser, also a math teacher, told me to use mathematical induction. I have spent months trying to prove it. She said the last time i came to her that i have proved it, but it was not in the formal manner. "What?!" i said "what format?" Please help me.
