**Steve**, Friday, September 23, 2011 at 2:01pmLet the driving time be t hours.

The distance covered is 81.5t km.

However, if we factor in the rest stop of 22/60 hours, the distance is 66.8(t+22/60).

Equating the two distances, we get

66.8(t+22/60) = 81.5t

66.8t + 25 = 81.5t

25 = 14.7t

t = 1.7 hours driving, so

the trip took 1hr 42min + 22min = 2hr 4min
