A businessman drives from Washington, D.C. to Boston, a distance of 442 miles, and then makes the return trip. On the way to Boston, he drives 65 miles per hour, taking a 1-hour rest stop during the drive. After finishing his business in Boston, he makes the return trip driving at 60 miles per hour and takes a 45-minute rest stop halfway through the trip.

Which leg of the journey, Washington, D.C. to Boston, or Boston to Washington, D.C. takes the longer time?
