Thadeus’s Thanksgiving feast was just too much! He started cooking the 70-pound turkey at 11:00 A.M.
At 11:30 A.M., he purchased 35 pounds of popcorn. He baked 700 pumpkin pies and half as many giblet-chip cookies. At 8:30 P.M., the turkey was finished cooking. His guests arrived at 6:00 P.M. They immediately ate 2/3 of the cookies! How long did it take Thadeus’s turkey to cook?

if the start time was 11:00 am and the end time was 8:30 PM, it took 1+8.5 = 9.5 -> 9 hrs and 30 minutes for the turkey to cook

 

hope this helps :)
