    @mr.tobby Both the cases the distance is the same, Let time taken usually be t hours First case the bus arrives half an hour late. So time taken by it (t+0.5) hours Second case the bus arrives half an hour early. Time taken (t-0.5) hours Distance covered in first case \[D=36(t+0.5)\] Distance covered in second case \[D=42(t-0.5)\] Equate both these \[36(t+0.5)=42(t-0.5)\] Can you find t from this ? @mr.tobby

    use D=42(t-0.5) and D = 42(t+0.5)
