New York and Denver are in different time zones. When it is noon in New York, it is 10 a.m. in Denver. A train leaves New York at 2 p.m. (New York time) and arrives in Denver 45 hours later. What time is it in Denver when the train arrives?
It would be 2 PM + 24 hours + 21 hours in New York = 11AM in New York = 9AM in Denver EDITED !
DANG I had the wrong departure time....a lot of mistakes reading Q's today !
It left NY at 2 pm, which is 12 noon in Denver.
12 noon in Denver + 48 hours - 3 hours =9 am Denver time almost 2 days later. OR:
It left NY at 2 pm, NY time:
2 pm + 48 hours - 3 hours =11 am NY time almost 2 days later. So 11 am NY time - 2 hours ahead of Denver =9 am Denver time [ Same as above].
Let's suppose that it takes 48 hours to arrive
When it's 2 PM in NYC it would be noon in Denver
So....it would arrive at noon in Denver if it takes 48 hours
But...it only takes 45 hours =
24 hours + 21 hrs =
noon + 21 hours =
noon + 12 + 9 hours =
midnight + 9 hours = 9 AM
