The city buses that run in your neighborhood stop every 12 minutes. The first bus arrives at 5:00 am for passengers. You get to the bus stop at 8:37 am. How long will you have to wait for a bus?

Accepted Solution

Find the number of minutes between 5:00am and 8:37am
60 mins in an hour.
8-5=3 hours
60x3=180+37=217 minutes
Divide 217 by 12 to see how many bus stops have already been made
217-216=1 minute
12-1=11 minutes
Therefore you will have to wait 11 minutes.
Hope this helps!
