Total Time taken for covering the distance at 20km/hr for the entire distance = \(\frac{40}{20} = 2 hr = 120 minutes\)

Now for the 1st 10 kms

Time taken for covering the distance at 30 km/hr = \(\frac{10}{30} = \frac{1}{3} hr = 20 minutes\)


Now for the 2nd 30 kms

Time taken for covering the distance at 15 km/hr = \(\frac{30}{15} = 2 hr = 120 minutes\)

So total time taken in this breakup journey = \(120 + 20 = 140 minutes.\)

Therefore extra time taken = \(140 -120 = 20 minutes\)
