Answer:

#"6:56 am"#

Explanation:

Multiply #2# minutes by #18# stops to find the number of minutes it will take for the bus to start the route to get to stop #18#.

#2 xx 18 = 36# minutes

To get the time, add #6:20 + 0:36#, giving you #"6:56 am"#.

Answer:

#6:56 AM#

Explanation:

Actually this is not a true model. It does not allow for entry or exit time onto or off the bus. For this to work it implies that there is 0 time allowed for getting onto the bus.

2 minute intervals gives a total time of #2xx18 = 36# minutes to arrive at your stop.

Start time is: #color(white)("dddd")"hours"color(white)("d")" minutes"#
#color(white)("ddddddddddddddd")6color(white)("dddddd")20#
Time to the stop#ul(color(white)("dddddddddd")36 larr" Add")#
#color(white)("ddddddddddddddd")6color(white)("dddddd")56#

As the 56 minutes is less than 1 hour we have nothing to carry over into the hours. Thus the time of arrival is: #6:56 AM#
