**Hint:**We know that the total number of segments in the clock is 12 and each segment is covered at the end of each hour. Use this concept to solve the problem.

**Complete step-by-step answer:**Step 1 :

In a clock there are totally 12 segments.

We divide our clock into 12 segments

Each segment is covered at the end of every hour.

Step 2:

We are said that the hour hand of the clock goes from 12 to 9

This means that it has been 9 hours

So this tells us that 9 segments have been covered .

And the total number of segments is 12.

Hence the fraction is given as

$

\Rightarrow \dfrac{9}{{12}} \\

\Rightarrow \dfrac{3}{4} \\

$

**Therefore the fraction covered by the clockwise movement of the hour hand from 12 to 9 is $\dfrac{3}{4}$.**

**Note:**1.Every fraction has a numerator that equals the number of parts we have and a denominator equaling the total number of parts in a whole.

2.Any fraction with a Denominator of 1 is equal to its Numerator
