The church in the US has a big clock tower and is said to be over 300 years old. Every Monday 10.00 A M the clock is set by Antony, doing service in the church. The Clock loses 6 mins every hour. What will be the actual time when the faulty clock shows 3 P.M on Friday?
Total hours from Monday 10.00 AM to Friday 3.00 PM =101 HOURS
The clock loses 6 minutes every hour.In 101 hours it will lose 101 x 6 =606 minutes. ie 10 hours 06 minutes.
To find the actual time, calculate 10 hours 6 min backwards from Friday 3.00 PM which is 4:54 AM
Hence the actual time would be 4:54 AM when clock shows 3.00 PM on Friday.
