Let it be x minutes to 6 o’clock from now

There are 180 minutes between 3 to 6 o’clock, hence current time is 180-x

Time , 50 minutes ago was **180-x-50 = 130-x**

Since 50 minutes ago it was 4 times as many minutes to 6 o’clock

which means **130-x = 4x => 130 = 5x => x = 26 minutes.**

**Thus, it’s 26 minutes to 6 o’clock from now**
