Practical Mathematics K10Jane would ordinarily like to drive at 60 mph on this particular stretch of road. However there is a large truck driving at 30 mph which is slowing her down. She knows that in 1 mile there will be a multi-lane road section (dual carriageway) where she can easily overtake, so she waits behind the truck. Gerry is impatient and overtakes both Jane and the truck to travel at 60 mph.

Roughly how much time does Gerry save in this situation?
