Hey markosheehan.
The minute hand does 360/60 degrees for one minute which is 6 degrees.
Your question is a little difficult to understand - what hand are you referring to and how much does the hour hand have to move? [Please tell us the time frame in absolute terms you are looking at].
minute hand moves at a rate of 6 degrees per min
hour hand moves at 30 degrees per hour = 1/2 degree per minute
the hour and minute hand are superimposed at 12:00
at 12:01, the minute hand has moved 6 degrees while the hour hand has moved 1/2 of a degree
6 - (1/2) = 5 and a half degrees
