Number of Bus Stops
by: Staff

Answer:


Assuming the first stop is at 9 am, and the last stop is at 6 pm


Stops between 9 am and 3 pm

      6 hours * 2 stops per hour = 12 stops


Stops between 3 pm and 6 pm

      3 hours * 4 stops per hour = 12 stops


One last stop at 6 pm

      One last stop at 6 pm = 1 stop


Total number of stops

      Total = 12 + 12 + 1 = 25 stops


Final Answer

      Total number of bus stops between 9 am and 3 pm

      = 25 stops
