Car ride

A car starts from kilometer zero of the road that leads to the coast. After a while, it passes in front of a kilometer point that shows a two-digit figure. An hour later, it passes through another kilometer point with the peculiarity that it shows a number with the same figures as the previous one but changed order.

An hour later, he arrives at his destination, just at a kilometer point with the same figures as the first separated by a zero.

What is the total distance traveled by the car and how long did it take to arrive?

Solution

The total distance was 106Km. The first kilometer point marked 16, the second 61 and since it took an hour to reach each kilometer point, the Total tour time was 2 hours.
