What time is it?

What time is it, when there is four times less time left until midnight than the time that has elapsed since noon? What time is it, when one-fifth of the hours that have passed since midnight is equal to one-third of the hours that are missing by 12 o'clock?

Result

a = 14:24 hh:mm Wrong answer
b = 7:30 hh:mm Wrong answer

Step-by-step explanation:


a-12 = (24-a)/4

5a = 72

a = 72/5 = 14.4

Our simple equation calculator calculates it.

b/5 = (12-b)/3

8b = 60

b = 15/2 = 7.5

Our simple equation calculator calculates it.
