She observes that the towns are each five miles apart, and there are fifteen minute intervals between when the storm hits each town. She realizes that this means the storm is traveling five miles every fifteen minutes. Since Power Pass is ten miles away from Winterdale, the last town the storm hit, she multiplies to figure out that the storm will pass through Power Pass 30 minutes after Winterdale.

## Creating a Code
