Imagine a digital clock like the one shown below. How many times will the clock display three or more of the same number in a row over the course of one day?
In case you were wondering, the clock in this puzzle displays time on a 12-hour scale, not on military time.
Give it another shot!
Are you sure you haven't forgotten a few possible combinations?
Also, don't forget that you need to double your total to account for both a.m. and p.m.
A series of three or more of the same digit appears 34 times over the course of 24 hours. See the chart above for details.
It's easy enough to spot times like 1:11 or 2:22, but many people forget about combinations like 10:00 or 11:12.
