How many minutes is it until 5:00 if forty minutes ago it was four times as many minutes past 2 o'clock? 

 

There are 180 minutes from 2 o'clock to 5 o'clock

 

The time is now 28 minutes until 5  

 

Explanation:  If it's now 28 minutes until 5, then 40 minutes ago it was 68 minutes until 5,  

                      which is 112 minutes after 2  (i.e. 180 – 68 = 112)  and 112 is 4 times 28
