The chauffeur stops and takes Mr. Smith home; this brings Mr. Smith home 10 minutes earlier than usual. Disregarding time for stopping and picking up, and assuming that the chauffeur normally arrives at the station at the same moment as Mr. Smith, for how long (in minutes) did Mr. Smith walk?

any help please?
