# At what time did I reach college?

77 views

Today, in the morning, while going to college, I looked at the clock in the mirror. The clock has no number indication and I made a mistake in interpreting the time (mirror-image). Assuming that the clock must be out of order, I went to college, where I arrive after twenty minutes. At that moment the clock at college shows a time that is two and a half hours later than the time that I saw on the clock (mirror-image) at home.

At what time did I reach college?

Garima takes the underground train to work and uses an escalator at the railway station. If Garima runs up 8 steps of the escalator, then it takes her 30.0 seconds to reach the top of the escalator. If she runs up 15 steps of the escalator, then it takes her only 12.5 seconds to reach the top.

How many seconds would it take Garima to reach the top if she did not run up any steps of the escalator at all?
