Your flight takes off from the eastern United States at 10 AM. What time will you arrive on the west coast, if the flight takes six hours?

• social studies -

When it's 10 AM in the Eastern zone, it's 7 AM on the west coast.

One way to figure it is to understand that the flight leaves at 7 AM Pacific time. Add 6 to 7 to find out what time it arrives.
