Time spent during the drive is 5 hours and 30 minutes(as Frank starts driving at 6:15 and arrives his destination at 11:45)

Since he spent an hour for dinner, he would have traveled a total of 4 hours and 30 minutes(at 30 miles/hr)

Therefore, Frank travels a distance of 120 + 15 = 135 miles(Option B) during this time.

Duration of travel = 6:15 p.m. to 11:45 p.m = 5 hours and 30 mins with an hour of stop

So net Duration of travel = 4 hours and 30 minutes = 4.5 hours

Average speed of travel = 30 miles per hour

Distance = Speed X Time

i.e. Distance travelled = 30 * 4.5 = 135 miles


Answer: option B

Total time spent on Journey is 5 Hours and 30 Minutes.

Time spent on travel = 5:30 - 1:00 (Time spent on dinner)

Travel time: 4:30
Speed: 30 Miles / Hour

Distance = Time * Speed = 135 Miles

Ans: B

The entire trip took 5.5 hours. Since Frank stopped for one hour, his driving time was 5.5 - 1 = 4.5 hours, at a rate of 30 miles per hour.

So the distance between Boxville and Austin is 30 x 4.5 = 135 miles.

Answer: B
