Boy goes to school looks at clock in mirror without realizing it, arrives at school 20 minutes later and finds that it's an 2hrs 30 mins later than the time he saw in the mirror. What time did he arrive at school?

1:55 is another possible solution.

I solved this but my answer doesn't match. I used:

Now - Mirror' = 1/3
Now - Mirror = 2.5
Mirror + Mirror' = 12 or Mirror + Mirror' = 24

I solve to get 7:25 or 1:25. The answer posted is 7:55 or 1:55. Did I miss something or is my answer correct?
