It does not say WHEN in the 24 hours she took an eight hour break

0 8 16

1 8 15

2 8 14

3 8 13

4 8 12

5 8 11

6 8 10

7 8 9

8 8 8

9 8 9

1st column is hours walked before break(second column) third column is longest walk segment that adds total to 24 hr

Answer could be 9 OR 16 hours or 12 hours. Since she took a 'break' I will assume she walked for a while before and after her break..(i.e. she didn't START with a break) then the answer would be 9 hours or 12 hours.

The total number of hours minus the number of hours she didn't walk equals the number of hours she walked.

24 - 8 = 16

**4) 16 hours**
