A small interesting riddle..

Wandering through the walls of my office I came across this interesting small puzzle, it is stated as:

Question: If it were two hours later it would be half as long until midnight as it would be if it were an hour later What time is it now?

    Hi,

    I think I have got the answer:

    (x+2) + y = 12
    (x+1) + 2y = 12

    =>

    y=1
    and
    x=9

    9pm!

    gud nite 🙂

    Hello,

    I’ll agree with Mudassir. I have been trying to get any other solution set…….but I think these set of equations only have one solution set.

    So, this proves that Haroon Saeed was wandering in office at 2100….. 😛

    By the way, nice use of words, Haroon 😉
