A reservation clerk worked 12.6 hours one day. She spent twice as much time entering new reservations as she did verifying old ones and one and a half as much time calling to confirm reservations as verifying old ones. How much time did she spend entering new reservations?
The question is unclear and unrealistic. Calling to verify reservations is part of confirming old reservations.
Most hotels etc. do not call to confirm reservations
