Homework Help: Geography

Posted by matt on Tuesday, January 30, 2007 at 11:32pm.

A traveler leaves Lima, Peru ( approximately 12 degrees S. Lat. And 90 degrees W. long.) at 8:00 am on Tues. Oct. 3rd and travels for 14 hrs before arriving in Sydney, Australia ( approx. 34 degrees S and 150 degree E). what time and what day would the traveler arrive according to Sydney time? ( show work pleas)




Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Again, I used the World Clock:

If it is 8:00 a.m. on Tues. Oct 3 and you travel 14 hours, it should then be 16 hours later plus the 14 hours you travel. So if it's 10 p.m. on Wed when you arrive in Sydney, the local time should be Thursday, 2 p.m.
