The ratio of time in car and boat is 5:1 (boat being the longest)

5 + 1 = 6 parts

1 part = 12/6 = 2 hours = time in car

5 parts = 2 x 5 = 10 hours = time on boat

There was 10 - 2 = 8 hours more spent on the boat.

Let v be speed

Car: 5v

Boat: v

t(car) = d/v = d/5v

t(boat) = d/v = d/v

Well, you can just look at the question and conclude the answer is 5x (ans = 60 hours)
