The clock hand makes a full turn. What number will it point to?

We’re asked what number the clock hand will be pointing to after it makes a full turn. The clock hand is the longest hand, sometimes called the minute hand. At the moment, the clock hand is pointing to the number three. Which number will it be pointing to after it’s made a full turn?

After a quarter of a turn, it will point to number six. After a half a turn, it will be pointing to number nine. After it’s made three-quarters of a turn, it will be pointing to number 12. And after it’s made a full turn, it will be pointing at number three again. If the clock hand makes a full turn, the number it will point to is number three.
