Let Joe walked with velocity v m/min
So he ran with velocity 33v m/min.

Joe took 66min to walk half way to school. So he walked 66v m and also ran 66vm.

Time taken to run 66v m with velocity 33v m/min is #(66v)/(33v)=2min#

And time taken to walk first half is 66min

So total time requird to go from home to school is #66+2=68min#
