Gabe lives fifteen miles from school and the bus stops seven times at three minutes each between his house and school. The bus arrives at his house at 7:30. Gabe's friend Aaron lives 8 miles from school and the bus stops four times at 2 minutes each between his house and school. The bus arrives at his house at 8:00. What time does each boy arrive at school?
Can someone please help? I have no idea how to turn this into an equation; it seems so long and confusing.

TimeGabe= leaving time + stopping time
Time Aaron= leaving time + stopping time.

I still don't get it! My brain is burnt right now.

TimeGabe=leaving time + stopping time
7:51=7:30 + 21(7x3)
Gabe arrives @ 7:51, right?
Then for Aaron:
Time Aaron=leaving time + stopping time
same thing:
8:08=8:00 + 8(4x2)
So Aaron gets there @ 8:08.
