Javier leaves Edmonton AB, at 1:20 p.m and arrives in St. John'S, NL, at 8:45 p.m How long is his fight?
You're pretty lucky. I just happened to be on :D
So, since they're both PM, we don't have to do any conversions.
We know that 7 hours have passed, and also 25 minutes from 1:20 to 8:45.
Converting the 7hours to minutes and adding 25, we get 445 minutes. Javier's flight took 445 minutes to complete.
I hope this helped!
St. John's Nfld is 3:30 hours ahead of Edmonton, AB.
When the plane leaves Edmonton at 1:20 pm, it is already 4:50 pm in St. John's.
8:45 pm - 4:50 pm =3:55 hours - duration of the flight
I believe the problem didn't take into account that the time zones are different, since if it did, then the problem would probably have told us which time zones to follow and what time zones the times it gave us were in.
And who downvoted the above post? This was an amazing attempt by a user, and if it was the wrong answer, at least congratulate them on trying!
Note that this could be a "trick" question.....
Look at the Canadian Time zones, here : https://www.timeanddate.com/time/zone/canada
Note that the time difference between Edmonton and St. Johns = 3 and 1/2 hrs
Thus when it is 8:45 PM in St Johns, it is actually just 5:15 PM in Edmonton
So....he has actually been traveling from 1:20PM to 5:15 PM as viewed in terms of Edmonton time
So....he actually only travels 5 minutes less than 4 hours = 3 hrs 55 min
