Question

Until 1883, every city and town in the United States kept its own local time. Today, travelers reset their watches only when the time change equals 1.0 h. How far, on the average, must you travel in degrees of longitude until your watch must be reset by 10 hours? (Hint: Earth rotates 360° in about 24 h.)
