To get the first 4 min spaces between the hands ,the minute hand has to gain 20 - 4 = 16 minute spaces over the hour hand.

To get the second 4 min spaces between the hands ,the minute hand has to gain 20 + 4 = 24 minute spaces over the hour hand.

In 60 minutes, minute hand gains 55 minute spaces over the hour hand.

Time taken for gaining 16 minute spaces by minute hand
