Imogen is having a New Year party tomorrow night and she has invited Madeline, hoping not to have a repeat of last year’s episode which completely spoilt the celebrations. Last New Year’s Eve Madeline had been due at a certain whole number of minutes past an hour but she was late, the number of minutes late being that same aforementioned “certain number of minutes” but with the digits in the reverse order. Madeline pointed out that at least the angle between the hands of the clock at the moment of her arrival was the same as it would have been when she was due.
At what time was she due to arrive?
