Here is part of the bus timetable from Riverdale to Mott Haven. How many minutes does it take the 10:31 bus from Riverdale to reach Mott Haven? Mr. Evans is at Fordham at 10:30. What is the earliest time he can reach Tremont on the bus?

The first part of the question asks us how many minutes it takes the 10:31 from Riverdale to reach Mott Haven. The column highlighted orange shows the 10:31 from Riverdale and the time it arrives in Mott Haven. This bus leaves Riverdale at 10:31 and arrives in Mott Haven at 11:17. So we’re asked to find out how many minutes it takes to get from Riverdale to Mott Haven.

If we add 29 minutes to 10:31, that will take us to 11:00. And if we add 17 minutes to 11 o’clock, that takes us to 11:17. Now we just need to add together these two differences: 29 minutes and 17 minutes. 29 and 10 is 39. 39 add seven makes 46. The 10:31 bus from Riverdale takes 46 minutes to reach Mott Haven.

Now we can answer the second part of the question. Mr. Evans is at Fordham at 10:30. What’s the earliest time he can reach Tremont on the bus?

This row highlighted in pink shows us the times that the bus leaves Fordham. If Mr. Evans is at Fordham at 10:30, what’s the earliest bus he could catch? It would have to be the 10:38. The 10:38 from Fordham arrives in Tremont at 10:44. The earliest time Mr. Evans can reach Tremont on the bus is 10:44.
