(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Jake's kitchen clock had stopped at 2:00 pm and he replaced the battery not knowing the exact time. He then rode to visit Avon, arriving at 3:15 pm and leaving at 4:45 pm. If when he arrived home the kitchen clock said 5:30 pm, what was the correct time?

This was a question a friend gave me and I couldn't get my head around it to solve it. I think I am having the problems solving it because I don't really know if the specified times of 3:15 pm and 4:45 pm are off of his re-set clock or another clock variable. Also not knowing the amount of time it took him to ride to Avon's and home confused me.

I am not particularly good at maths, but I would greatly appreciate a way to solving this question in simple terms so I can grasp the concept
