I am having problems coming up with the answer to this problem. Could you kindly help me. It took Amanda 3 hours and 20 minutes to drive from her home to a friend’s house. She

then drove to the beach which took her 4 hours and 25 minutes. It only took Amanda 5

hours and 35 minutes to return home because she took a shortcut. What was Amanda’s

total driving time?
