Bus has 37 km to travel when car completed the 2nd half of the journey
Extra time taken by the bus compared to the car = 37/68 hr
The car took 2 1/4 hour to travel 1/2 the distance
The bus took (2 1/4 + 37/68) hr to travel half the distance
Half the distance = 68 x (2 1/4+37/68) = 190 km
The full distance - 190 x 2 = 380 km
