novpomJanice and Stephanie like to run, so they decided to join the Turkey Trot, a 5-mile long race. When the race started, Janice took off and ran the first two miles at a speed of 10 mph (miles per hour), but soon became tired and ran the rest of the race at a speed of 6 mph. Stephanie ran the first 3 miles of the race at 8 mph, but after taking a break for a few minutes, she ran the rest of the distance at a speed of 12 mph. If Janice and Stephanie finished the Turkey Trot at the same time, how long was Stephanie’s break, in minutes?
