It’s our favourite time of year again! 14th of March marks another maths holiday to celebrate the mathematical constant pi (π), reminding us that maths is fun and applicable outside the classroom.
Happy New Year! On the first Word Problem Wednesday of 2017, we're shouting out to all of you who had a great time traveling with family over the holidays. Solve this week's word problem and check back tomorrow for the answer.
Paolo takes a plane from Seattle to New York. The plane takes off at 8:30 in the morning and lands 5 hours and 48 minutes later. New York is 3 time zones (3 hours) ahead of Seattle. What time does the plane land in New York?
Update: Here's the solution!
The time in New York will be 5 hours and 48 minutes + 3 hours = 8 hours and 40 minutes after 8:30 AM. Eight hours after 8:30 AM is 4:30 PM, and 48 minutes after that is 5:18 PM.
