Emilia started a puzzle at 12:56 p.m. and solved it at 1:33 p.m. how long did it take Amelia to solve the puzzle so we can see she started at 12:56 p.m. and ended at 1:33 p.m. these are both p.m. then we'll assume on the same day so that means it didn't take all the way from morning to night they're both afternoon so she started at 12:56 and we want to know how long it takes to get to 133 when she finished the puzzle well from 12 56 to 1 p.m. we can figure out how long that is that's only four minutes there's only four minutes between 12 56 and 1 and then to get from 1 all the way to 133 p.m. is another 33 minutes so Amelia worked for 4 minutes plus another 33 minutes after one o'clock she worked for 4 minutes before 1 33 minutes after 1 so she worked for a total of 37 minutes on her puzzle before solving it
