Begin

They will cross each other eleven times as indicated at the times below:

1. 12:00

2. 1:05

3. 2:10

4. 3:16

5. 4:21

6. 5:27

7. 6:32

8. 7:38

9. 8:43

10. 9:49

11. 10:54

You cannot count 12:00 twice. If you consider several twelve hour periods in a row, the twelve o'clock coincidence occurs only once in each cycle. Therefore it is counted initially or at the end.
