1. Miss Morton is taking a trip to visit her sister in Auckland, New Zealand. Her flight leaves Philadelphia, at 7 AM Friday and is scheduled to take 18 hours. What time (and day!) should she tell her sister to pick her up at the Auckland airport, assuming she needs an extra half hour to de-plane and pick up her bags?


2. Sarah is a bridesmaid in best friend’s wedding in Los Angeles. The wedding is scheduled for 6 PM on Saturday. Sarah’s flight leaves Philadelphia at 1 PM Saturday afternoon and is scheduled to take 6 hours. Assuming it will take her an extra hour to get to the ceremony location from the airport and another hour to get ready, will Sarah be ready for the wedding on time?


I understand how to do them, just want the answers as I can't find them.

I managed to get:

1) She arrives at the airport at 6pm Auckland time and should meet her sis at 6:30


2) She arrives in Los Angeles at 4pm and can make it to the wedding at 6pm (All Los Angeles time)

1) I had to look up the time difference because the question does not specify this, but yes, 18:30 is the correct Auckland time. Should also mention the day is Saturday.

2) This is correct as well. Again had to look up the time difference.
