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
