Answer

$150^o$

Work Step by Step

There are 12 hours around a clock. One rotation around the clock makes 360 degrees. This means that in each hour, a clock's hand moves: $=\dfrac{360^o}{12} \\=30^o$ There are 5 hours from 12 o'clock to 5 o'clock. This means that from 12 to 5 o'clock, the clock's hour hand moves: $=5(30^o) \\=150^o$
