3 trains A, B and C operate between P, Q, R and S. Use the table given to check the times.

#### Work out in 12 hour system

• The time the last train leaves Town P
• The time the last train arrives in Town S
• The time taken by Train A to reach Town S from P
• The time Sala arrives intown S If she lives in town Q and works in town R from 8:30am to 1:00pm.
