Three
Clocks
.
On Friday, April 1,
1898, three new clocks were all set going precisely at the same
time—twelve noon.
At noon on the following day it was found that clock A had kept perfect
time, that clock B had gained exactly one minute, and that clock C had
lost exactly one minute.
Now, supposing that the clocks B and C had not been regulated, but all
three allowed to go on as they had begun, and that they maintained the
same rates of progress without stopping, on what date and at what time
of day would all three pairs of hands again point at the same moment at
twelve o'clock?
