## anonymous 3 years ago A clock loses 32 minutes in a day. If the clock is set at 3 a.m. today, then what will be the correct time when the clock indicates 7 p.m. on the 4th day

1. anonymous

minutes to recover : $\frac{32}{1\cdot 24}=\frac{t}{4\cdot 24+16}$

2. anonymous

Minutes to recover = 3*32 + 16/24 *32 = 117.333 minutes = 1 hour 57 minutes 20 seconds

3. anonymous

So, correct time will be 8 pm 57 minutes 20 seconds
