Answer:11:01 am

Step-by-step explanation:If paco drives 55 miles per hour you must divide 274 by 55 to find the amount of time it will take for him to reach his destination:

274÷55=4.981818…

Now we have 4 hours plus 0.981818.. hours which the latter we multiply by 60 to find out how many minutes are 0.981818 hours:

60×0.981818…=58.9090…

which I will round to 59 as clocks show an hour and a minute so rounding it so it’s accurate to the second is unnecassary, this means it will take him 4 hours 59 minutes to reach his destination so we subtract this from 4:00 pm:

4:00 pm-4 hours 59 minutes= 11:01 am

So our answer is 11:01 am
