Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let's say the packet starts being transmitted at t=0. The propagation time is d/c = 1000e3/2.8e8 = 3.5714e3 seconds. This is when the leading edge of the packet just starts arriving at the receiver. The duration of the packet is 56 / 115e6 = 4.87e7 seconds. The entire packet will have arrived at the receiver at the sum of these two times, or 3.5719 msec.
