[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Pay close attention to where the hour and minute hands are pointing. If you have an analog clock handy, you could figure out the answer by playing around with it. But if you just think about how the hands move as the time changes, you should be able to figure it out.

Hint Two
    Have you noticed exactly where the hour and minute hands are pointing? What time is it on an analog clock when the hour and minute hands are in a straight line?

Hint Three
    The hour and minute hands are each pointing straight at one of the hour marks around the clock, so the time must be right on an hour.

    The hour and minute hands are also in a straight line, so what time must it be?

Super Hint
    Even if you don't own an analog clock, you can get the answer right away if you visualize the clock hands moving around as the hours go by.

    First, picture the hour and minute hands pointing straight up and overlapping at 12:00. Now, as the hands move hour by hour, when is the one time when they end up pointing in a straight line?

Too bad!

Visualize an analog clock, and try again.

Handy!

Once you notice exactly where the hour hand is pointing, the rest is pretty easy.
