A remote control car can run for one hour at normal speed, 40 minutes at turbo speed, and 20 minutes at hyperturbo speed before its battery life is consumed. After running for 2 minutes at hyperturbo speed and 18 minutes at turbo speed, how much longer can the car run at normal speed, assuming it started with a fully charged battery?

After running for 2 minutes at hyperturbo speed, the battery has

 

1  - 2/20 =  1 - 1/10  =  .9   of its  battery life left

 

And after running for another 18  minutes at turbo speed, the battery has

 

.9  - 18/40  =   .9  - 9/20  =   .9  - .45 =  .45  of its battery life left

 

So....after switching to normal speed

 

The car  can run for     60  * .45  =    27   more minutes
