Let s = his normal speed
t = his normal time

Then
D = (3/4)s * (t+16)
Since the distance is the same we can equate this to his regular day which is D = s*t
s*t = (3/4)s * (t+16)
t=48

Answer: B

Would you explain how do you get t=48?

Look.
Vt=S (normal speed, normal time)
3/4V(t+16)=S (slow speed, late)
We can, for example divide second equation on first equation, thus we eliminate 2 variables.
3/4V(t+16) / Vt = S / S = 1
3/4(t+16)/t=1 ----> 3/4t+12=t ----> t = 48 mins
