Q:
# 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

A:

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

217/12=18

18*12=216

217-216=1 minute

12-1=11 minutes

Therefore you will have to wait 11 minutes.

Hope this helps!
