On Time for the Interview

Directions: Use the Chunking strategy and the chart below to divide this problem into smaller “chunks” of information to make it easier to process and solve:

Matthew’s job interview is scheduled for 3:00 pm on Saturday. Matthew learned in his Personal Finance class that he should arrive for an interview 15 minutes before the scheduled time. Matthew has no transportation; so he will have to take the public bus. Matthew checked online and found that busses pick up at the bus stop nearest to his home weekends from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm daily. Busses arrive there every hour on the hour and every fifteen minutes after. The bus ride from that bus stop to the bus stop closest to the interview location is two blocks away and takes five minutes to walk. Matthew has ridden the bus from this pickup location twice before and knows that it takes thirteen minutes to ride from there to the stop closest to the interview location.
