Vanessa,
In order to answer this question you need two pieces of information. This first is how many degrees in a circle and how many minutes in an hour. The number of degrees in a circle/ by the number of minutes in a hour will tell you how many degrees covered in a minute. If you then multiply this by 21 you will get your answer. I hope this is helpful.
